Summary0005657: who are limited to 100 results, when configured without limit (module whox.c)
Descriptionwhen unconfigued who-limit value is set to 0, the server only return 100 results.

the documentation says :
set::who-limit ; Syntax: set::who-limit <limit> ; Sets the limit for the maximum number of matches that will be returned for a /who. If this option is left out, no limit is enforced.

but the source code of whox.c contradict this statement :
static void who_global(Client *client, char *mask, int operspy, struct who_format *fmt)
        Client *acptr;
        int maxmatches = WHOLIMIT ? WHOLIMIT : 100;

Steps To Reproduceno who-limit configuration

Additional Informationfix the documentation ?

Thanks for the report. I have updated the documentation at
As for your question how high to set for unlimited, well you can set it to 1 million that should be sufficiently high I think :D

Also I only just now noticed that the limit also applies to IRCOps, which is not what we want, so IRCOps are exempt now, which is what this commit is for:
