LIST

LIST gives a list of channels matching the pattern, modified by the other options.

Syntax: LIST <pattern> [options]

Options are:
-min <n>: show only channels with at least <n> users
-max <n>: show only channels with at most <n> users
-skip <n>: skip first <n> matches
-show [m][t]: show modes/topicsetter
-mode <+|-|=><modes>: modes set/unset/equal
-topic <pattern>: topic matches pattern
-showsecret: show secret channels (requires chan:auspex)

The pattern can contain * and ? wildcards. The pattern has to match the full channel name or a full topic, depending on where it is used; the wildcards are important. The pattern is also automatically surrounded by * wildcards if - a channel name pattern starts with a wildcard or a #, or - a topic pattern contains no * wildcards.

For example, for channel names, from most to least specific: ?bar - any character followed by "bar" with no other characters #bar* - anything starting with "#bar" ##*bar* - anything starting with ## and containing "bar" *cows*moo* - anything containing "cows", 0 or more characters, and "moo" *bar* - anything containing "bar" (equivalent to "bar")

Examples:
/msg ALIS LIST searchterm
/msg ALIS LIST * -topic multiple*ordered*search*terms
/msg ALIS LIST * -min 50
/msg ALIS LIST #foo*
/msg ALIS LIST #foo* -mode =n
/msg ALIS LIST *freetopic* -mode -t -show mt
/msg ALIS LIST ##nocolors* -mode +c -show t
