EBNF for IRC ^

based upon Section 2.3.1 of RFC 2812 (http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/rfc/rfc2812.txt)

    letter     =  %x41-5A / %x61-7A       ; A-Z / a-z
    digit      =  %x30-39                 ; 0-9
    hexdigit   =  digit / "A" / "B" / "C" / "D" / "E" / "F"
    special    =  %x5B-60 / %x7B-7D
               ; "[", "]", "\", "`", "_", "^", "{", "|", "}"
