$mask returns the address with a mask of the specified type.
- address - The address you want the mask of.
- type - The type of address, a positive integer between 1-19:
- 0: *!user@host
- 1: *!*user@host
- 2: *!*@host
- 3: *!*user@*.host
- 4: *!*@*.host
- 5: nick!user@host
- 6: nick!*user@host
- 7: nick!*@host
- 8: nick!*user@*.host
- 9: nick!*@*.host
Type 10-19 are same as types 0-9 except asterisks in host are expanded to the text they replaced, then all numbers are replaced by question marks.
Masks are case-insensitive and assigned by the internet provider, but IRC servers often provide user mode +x to help disguise them.
