DESCRIPTION ^

IRC mask manipulation utilities derived from IRC::Utils.

matches_mask

Takes an IRC mask, a string to match it against, and an optional IRC casemap (see IRC::Toolkit::Case).

Returns boolean true if the match applies successfully.

normalize_mask

Takes an IRC mask and returns the "normalized" version of the mask.

parse_user

Splits an IRC mask into components.

Returns all available pieces (nickname, username, and host, if applicable) in list context.

Returns just the nickname in scalar context.
