AddCallback Example

ircobj.AddCallback("PRIVMSG", func(event *irc.Event) {
	//event.Message() contains the message
	//event.Nick Contains the sender
	//event.Arguments[0] Contains the channel
});

Please note: Callbacks are run in the main thread. If a callback needs a long time to execute please run it in a new thread.

Example:

    ircobj.AddCallback("PRIVMSG", func(event *irc.Event) {
	go func(event *irc.Event) {
                    //event.Message() contains the message
                    //event.Nick Contains the sender
                    //event.Arguments[0] Contains the channel
	}(event)
    });

Commands

ircobj := irc.IRC("<nick>", "<user>") //Create new ircobj
//Set options
ircobj.UseTLS = true //default is false
//ircobj.TLSOptions //set ssl options
ircobj.Password = "[server password]"
//Commands

ircobj.SendRaw("<string>") //sends string to server. Adds \r\n
ircobj.SendRawf("<formatstring>", ...) //sends formatted string to server.n
