HalpyBOT Command and Fact Listing
What is HalpyBOT?
HalpyBOT (v1.6.1) is our Second-Generation IRC Assistant, designed to help Seals get limpets on target faster and more painless than ever before. It comes with a lot of features, and is easy to build upon with new features. Most notably for Seals, it powers our custom commands and functions. This command reference will help you understand the power that HalpyBOT puts in your hand.

Commands vs Facts
You may see two different terms thrown around a lot - Commands and Facts. In short, Commands do something while Facts are just spit out as programmed. If the response needs to be calculated, it's a command. If it's pre-programmed recital, it's a fact.
