Below are just some of the IRC/mIRCcommands, but I have tried to include the most common commands for you. For more commands, when using mIRC, type /help commands and /help IRC commands.

Some basic IRC and mIRC Commands

/ame sends the specified action to all channels which you are currently on.

/amsg sends the specified message to all channels which you are currently on.
