My Bot is really coming together now, but after speaking with a few other pug bot authors most of them are using tokens. Basically all the bot really does it maintain nick lists of ppl that type certain commands, 10 items at most in each array.

I've read a lot on hash tables so I think I have a good working understanding of them, but what exactly is the benefit of tokens? I can see from the syntax they would easy to play with the data, but in terms of speed which is faster? Which do you recommend? Thoughts, comments?

Any extra information on the topic would be greatly appreciated, also sorry if I posted this in the wrong thread!
