/me waves to everyoneto send "*akk waves to everyone" to the channel.
Great, but what if I want to start a line with a slash?
On some IRC clients, you can type two slashes, e.g.
/ /me triesbut on xchat that doesn't work -- it just complains "unknown command".
On xchat, what you need is /say:
/say /me succeeds!
Silly little tip, but I know I'll forget it if I don't record it ... and I bet I'm not the only xchat user wondering how to do this.
//me trieswhich is the obvious thing to try, but it hasn't always worked reliably for me. Try it ... but you can fall back on /say if // doesn't work.
