Who's online... in our IRC channel

My forum does it, so now it's IRC's turn.

I'm pretty sure it's possible, but haven't found any scripts that do it, or have any idea how I could code it myself.

Is there any way to query an IRC server to get a list of participants in a particular IRC channel?

In IRC, to find out who is in a channel, you use:

/names #channel

This will not work for +s (secret) channels, unless you are in them.

From what I managed to worm out of an IRCop, the only way you'd be able to do this externally is by routing it through a bot. But of course, IRCBot's aren't allowed ;) so he wouldn't elaborate. But it's definately possible. If you find out, let me know :)

IRC bots are only banned completely in a very very few Networks. Most networks use bots themselves for things such as Nickname registration (and authorising) and for Channel controls.

You'll find everything needed for this via 'eggdrop' bots...

One of my ops is planning to deploy a bot, and I've requested that it be able to answer queries from my web server. I'll post here again if I can get it working.
