3.7 CHANNELS AND USING THEM

You can imagine that a channel is like a multi-person telephone conversation. By using them you can speak to whoever is listening to them. The various channels are listed below, along with commands pertaining to them.

If you wish to configure the colour of channels, type CONFIG COLOUR and instructions will be presented.
