Starts a private conversation with <nicknames>. All text you type that would normally be sent to your channel now goes to <nicknames> in the form of MSGs. To cancel a private conversation, use QUERY with no arguments. The %n arguments allows you to send the query text to a process number n. The process must have already been started using a previous call to exec. It's also possible to query someone on a dcc connection with query =nickname. Another form has been added which allows you to send messages to the specified command with the format query /COMMAND and everything you type will be parsed by that /command. Can be an alias or anything you like. Note that when querying a command, you may need to use XECHO -WINDOW to ensure output goes to the right place. If "*" is given as a nickname the output is sent to the current channel.
