#9287 new enhancement

Best features for /list command

Reported by: galactic_cowboy Owned by: elb
Milestone: Patches welcome Component: IRC
Version: 2.5.6 Keywords:


/list #channel_name doesn't show just #channel_name in room list, the same thing if i use /list pidgin (without "#" before the keyword) for example ... it doesn't show channels with the word "pidgin" in name/topic. These are useful features of the others IRC clients.

The default /list command on IRC is very bare-bones, many networks provide advanced listing services/capabilities for exactly this usage.

Filtering the entire list client side is less than helpful (since it will still flood you off the network for large channel lists).

The /help for list specifically does not mention that you can supply any data and the room list dialog support inline type-ahead find for quickly searching/jumping to a specific room.

I'm going to leave this at patches welcome, but the patch would have to be rather compelling fo convince me it was worth it (especially given the flood issue).
