CTCP, or Client-To-Client Protocol, is a common protocol implemented by every major IRC client in use today. CTCP extends the original IRC protocol by allowing users to query other clients for specific information.

{{#set:Client=Main}} {{#set:Client=Widget}}{{#set:Type=Internet Relay Chat}}/ctcp nick query

Place a query to a users client and getting an answer.
