How do I get a list of ops for an irc channel, and the type of op that they are?

I could not find this help on http://www.irchelp.org/irchelp/opguide.html

    It varies by network. What network are you asking about? – David Schwartz Aug 1 '13 at 3:53

The names command will list all users in a channel and give their ranks beside them. Ops on a typical server are denoted with an @ beside their name, halfops with %, and voiced users with +, and owners are ~ (on some networks owners do not get a ~, they are just ops (@) with an extra mode set on them, +q, that gives them control of the channel).

Edit: There is a command /msg chanserv access #channel list that will show ops and privileged users on a channel if the listings are not private.

There is most likely a way, depending on your client, to write a little script to sort out the ops of a channel, but I am in no shape or form a competent programmer.

As David said, these commands are server specific, but the identifiers for the channel position are as well. The commands and rank signs I listed are typical on most networks I frequent.

If you need any further detail just leave a comment.
