ⓘ Comparison of Internet Relay Chat daemons

IRC server features, mostly extensions to RFC 1459. Probably also implementations of RFC 2810, RFC 2811, RFC 2812, RFC 2813, and possibly IRCX.

  • %##channels whose name are in UTF-8 for IRCX
  • %&channels &channels whose name are in UTF-8 for IRCX
  • &channels
  • +channels In early IRCds, these were simply named channels. At least one modern IRCD uses the + prefix for modeless channels, i.e. no chanops and channel mode forced to +nt. This is described in RFC 2811)
  • %!channels!channels whose name are in UTF-8 for IRCX
  • #channels "+channels" were later replaced with "#channels" in version 2.7, numeric channels were removed entirely and channel bans mode +b were implemented)
  • !channels irc2.10, those that are theoretically safe from suffering from the many ways that a user could exploit a channel by "riding a netsplit"; IRCds using timestamping provide most of this functionality on #channels)
