Simple bug that can be scripted around easily

Syntax: /describe #chan1,#chan2 action msg

sends msg to server but does not perform action echo to channels, but /describe #chan1 action will

While on this subject, what does mirc see as an action,
the raw action is just a privmsg to the server with some char 1's around it, looks like:

PRIVMSG #mirc :^AACTION msg^A

^A being $chr(1)
however mirc will also see it as an action without the last chr 1 on the end, but, try adding an extra chr 1 somewhere in the msg like //me $chr(1) see what you get, will echo your window as an action but an incomming msg will look like:

<nick>^AACTION ^A^A

why is that?

hmm, maybe i was a little too quick to post, just works the same as /msg only adds the ^AACTION at the start and the ^A on the end, /msg #chan1,#chan2 does the exact same thing.
