There isn't any documentation on this function on the php manual, so I'm guessing you won't get much of a response on this very new function. You'd best go to the main page on ircg functions - [de3.php.net...] - be sure to read the user notes. This relies on a shareware package - only handles 4 concurrent connections in the 'free' version. There's a url for the shareware package, which will likely give you some usage examples. There's also a user note on a PEAR package you could probably use instead.
