3.6.2 Whois query
Parameters: [ <target> ] <mask> *( "," <mask> )
This command is used to query information about particular user.

indicating different statuses of each user which matches the mask (if
you are entitled to see them). If no wildcard is present in the
<mask>, any information about that nick which you are allowed to see
If the <target> parameter is specified, it sends the query to a
specific server. It is useful if you want to know how long the user
in question has been idle as only local server (i.e., the server the
user is directly connected to) knows that information, while
everything else is globally known.
Wildcards are allowed in the <target> parameter.
