Connection dependant commands
|Many KVIrc commands are connection dependant:
you need an IRC connection to succesfully execute them;
usually because some data needs to be sent to the server.
This includes commands like whois,raw,query,
These commands must be executed in a window that is bound to a connected irc context. You will obviously get an error message if you try to use them in a window that has no associated IRC connection.
For instance: whois will work only if you execute it in a console , channel or query window.
If you want to use these commands in a window that is not associated to any IRC context you may use the standard -r switch. You can use the same switch to execute a command in an IRC context that is not the current one.
