Hooking Server Numerics

In addition to the numerous named hooks provided by the client (refer to the ON command in Section 5), EPIC can hook any numeric reply sent by a server. They are treated no differently from named hooks. Space constraints prevent a full discussion of all server numerics, not to mention that they tend to differ from network to network.

A small subset of commonly used numerics are provided for convenience. A mostly full listing can be found in the irc protocol specification, RFC 1459 (though you should look in the ircd source code for an exact list; they are in the file s_err.c in standard ircd distributions).
