This module by default sends numerics, to be compatible with existing scripts that use whois.


The original version of the code for this module can be found github. It does not work with the latest version of ZNC.

A modified version of the code that works with version 0.202 can be found here or here. It still relies 100% on the original author's code, but has had sections which break upon compile removed.

Follow the Compiling modules page to compile either version.

There are some comments at the very end of the code (if you download from my server). These are mostly ideas and a little bit of code.

ZNC 0.80[edit]

The current code takes advantage of functions introduced in ZNC 0.90. If you have ZNC 0.80 or earlier, please use the code here instead of the code in the repo or on the code page.
