In IRC, commands start with a forward slash, so if you want to use a forward slash as the first character of a line, you have to escape the forward slash.  This is done by using two forward slashes.  For example, if you wanted to say "/cs aop #chan add nick is the command to add somebody to the auto-op list", you would type in the input line the following:

In [[IRC]], commands start with a forward slash ("/"), so when you want to use a forward slash as the first character of a non-command Message, you have to escape the forward slash.  In the Mibbit client, this is done via the escape command:

{{:Command:Escape}}

For example, if you wanted to send the message "/cs aop #chan add nick is the command to add somebody to the auto-op list", you would type in the input line the following:

  //cs aop #chan add nick is the command to add somebody to the auto-op list
 
  //cs aop #chan add nick is the command to add somebody to the auto-op list
  
In the Twitter tab, you may not send messages starting with a forward slash without escaping it.  If you do not escape the forward slash, you get the following message:

<!-- In the Twitter tab, you may not send messages starting with a forward slash without escaping it.  If you do not escape the forward slash, you get the following message:
  <Twitter>: Message not sent. Use // if you really mean it.

In IRC, commands start with a forward slash ("/"), so when you want to use a forward slash as the first character of a non-command Message, you have to escape the forward slash. In the Mibbit client, this is done via the escape command:

{{#set:Client=Main}} {{#set:Client=Widget}}{{#set:Type=Parser}}// <text>

Sends text to IRC server, starting with forward slash without having the IRC server or Mibbit client treat as a command.

For example, if you wanted to send the message "/cs aop #chan add nick is the command to add somebody to the auto-op list", you would type in the input line the following:

//cs aop #chan add nick is the command to add somebody to the auto-op list
