Task #9221 requests the use of wildcards in /op & /voice etc.  This task requests that commands with more arguments than allowed by the ircd's MODES setting should be split into several lines by WeeChat.

For instance, the ircd has MODES set to 3, meaning that only 3 modes can be set with one mode command:

/op nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4

Here nick1, nick2 and nick3 are opped but nick4 isn't.  There is no error message to indicate that this has happened.  What WeeChat should do is split this into 2 seperate mode commands:

MODE #channel +ooo nick1 nick2 nick3
MODE #channel +o nick4

This is what the user expects to happen.  What happens currently is this:

MODE #channel +oooo nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4

The extra +o nick4 is ignored by the ircd because it's MODES string is set to 3 (as sent during connections).  I think this bug may need renaming to:

"WeeChat ignores server MODES setting"

Here is an example server line (this particular ircd allows 6 mode change per command):


I wonder if WeeChat is respecting the other settings?

Duplicate of task #9221

Please complete the other task with missing info (limit nicks to server limit for /op, /voice, ..) and then I'll close this one.

Clarification:  The current limit is restricted by how many modes the IRCd allows on one line.  Therefore the task really should specify that mode changes that do not fit on one line, should be queued for multiple lines.

This should also work with /voice and any other similar multi-argument server mode.

(within reason)

For instance, the following should op all six nicks:

/op nick1 nick2 nick3 nick4 nick5 nick6

What currently happens is that the first 4 are op'd, but the remainder aren't.

Also, wildcards would be cool ;)
