Hi Alexander,

You must use the "redirection" feature to catch output of an IRC command. This
is asynchronous and result is sent to a callback (because IRC server may not
reply immediately).

See the API doc for more info and an example (in C and Python):

To get the real name of someone on IRC, you must use this redirection, there is
no other way to proceed.

You can not catch (directly) output of commands (other than this redirection,
which is specific to an IRC command).
