Finding a Channel

Now that you can sign onto IRC, where do you go next? The easiest way to find a channel on IRC is via the /list command. It enables you to search through the thousands of channels on DALnet and find one that interests you. The syntax is

/list *subject*

Let's say you wanted to find a channel that dealt with horses; you'd type:

/list *horse*

You would then be provided with a list of channels that all have the word "horse" in their name (for example, #horselovers, #ILoveHorses, and so on). If you wish to register a channel of your own, check our ChanServ page at http://docs.dal.net/docs/chanserv.html. For an advance help of using the /list command, you can read http://docs.dal.net/docs/misc.html#2.
