@channel recall explained

Submitted by javelin on Mon, 2012-02-13 20:09

You can use @channel/recall channel=N to return the last N stored messages sent over the channel. However, you can't recall any lines unless the channel has been configured to actually store stuff. This is done with @channel/buffer channel=X, where X is the maximum number of 8k blocks to use to store lines. Within this space, as many lines as possible are stored, so that if there's a lot of short messages on the channel, you'll have a history going further back than when there's lots of long messages. @channel/what displays the amount of memory used in the recall buffer, and how many actual lines are being held at the moment.
