ircII help: on msg
Usage: ON [#|+|-|^|&|@]MSG [-|^]<parameters> [action] This is activated whenever you receive a MSG from someone. The parameters for the action are as follows: $0 nickname of person who sent the MSG $1- The message Warning: If you attempt to send a MSG from within a MSG action, it will be automatically converted to a NOTICE, as this will prevent MSG loops from being sent between two or more users. Also, you will not be permitted to send either MSGs or NOTICEs from within a NOTICE action. The irc protocol states that NOTICEs may not generate automatic replies so this will prevent loops of automatic messages from flooding the net.
