RPL_WHOISUSER (311) numeric is sent in response to the
:server 311 <nick> <client> <username> <hostname> * <realname>
<nick>: Nickname of the connected user.
<client>: Nickname of the user being
<username>: Username of the user.
<hostname>: Hostname of the user.
<realname>: Realname (or “gecos”) of the user.
<hostname> are the user and host parts of the given client’s usermask. See the examples for more concrete examples of this. The second-to-last parameter is a literal asterisk character, and does not represent anything.
<hostname> cannot start with a
: character (due to IRC parameter format restrictions), some IPv6 addresses may need to be adjusted to be sent in this parameter. For these IPv6 addresses, we recommend prefixing them with a
:irc.example.com 311 dan mike ~mi localhost * :Mike's such a cool person!
