Also if you're an oper with user mode +W and you use /msg IRC whois YOURNICK you get a /whois notice even though using /whois as normal on yourself doesnt produce the notice.

[20:05:17] *** Jobe ( did a /whois on you.

From what i can see, something is seriously screwed up with it, it even replies in a private message, even though its supposed to be numerics.
I've been messing with the code for the past 1.5 hours and I can offer no explanation as to why its acting weird, /msg IRCd WHOIS nick works fine, but messaging IRC does not.

Well concerning "/msg IRC whois" replying in PRIVMSG's, that behaviour actually makes sense to me because the whole "/msg IRC" system was designed for clients like for example web tv users who firstly cant recieve NOTICE's and cant use quite a few IRC commands that normal clints can use. And as for numerics, im not sure if they can receive numerics properly or not but sending the WHOI response in PRIVMSG garuntees they get it.

No, thats not the point of the IRC and IRCd nicks at all (not the reply anyways).
All other commands sent to these nicks reply normally, so there has to e some issue with this command specifically.

WebTV users simply set mode +V on themselves and all commands that normally reply with notices, reply in PRIVMSG's anyways; WebTV users have no issues with anything other than notices afaik.

One thing i find really useful about the IRC and IRCd nicks is that you can use multi-line pastes to queries with these nicks to execute multiple commands (like 100s of glines to get rid of a botnet), something normally not possible with mIRC.

Jobe1986 is correct. WebTV's (v1) cannot see many (if not all) numerics, hence the translation / special behavior. Just as an example, they cannot even see the banlist (/MODE #Chan b). Their IRC client is very much limited (in fact, I'd call it SEVERELY broken).

'IRC' is for webtv, and 'IRCd' is for needs like you djGrrr :p.

hmm, so modules need to have specific code for this special reply ? because every other command i tried responded normally (like /whowas /map /links etc..)

"/msg irc whois nick" This irc over whois is drawing. "/whois nick" with ircd.

It is going private one.It is being opened other on the window.

When I use "/msg irc whois Ldunda" Get out result :

<IRC> Ldunda is connecting from
<IRC> Ldunda is a registered nick
<IRC> Ldunda is on &#deor @#eğitim @#rekor @#help %#helpmaster @#helpdesk

<IRC> Ldunda has been idle for 0days 0hours 0minutes 0secs signed on at Thursday April 12 2007 -- 15:10 +02:00
<IRC> End of whois information for Ldunda

Example : /msg irc identify password

[12:17] -NickServ- Password accepted -- you are now recognized.

Services over built.(/msg irc) For this reason , it secretes

Other shape (/whois nick) It works over ircd.

Since webtv (/MSG IRC) support has now been ripped out, this problem is solved as well :D
