Default What is 'umode'?

Hi,
http://freenode.net/using_the_network.shtml: "+w (see wallops): This
umode lets you see the wallops announcement system: Important network
messages will be sent out via global notices; this is only for
noncritical announcements and comments which may be of interest."
What standard or document does define 'umode' in IRC?
Does 'umode' stand for 'IRC user mode'? What does 'IRC user mode' mean
precisely?

Regards,
Detlef Lechner

its server modes against your nick, set by server and by you, some umodes
you can unset some you can not.

more popular ones are +x if registered on undernet to protect your true
hostmark from normal users, some other networks do similar with +i, you
can use +d to make your client "deaf" this means you will not see any
channel chit chat, but will still get private messages and joins/parts
etc. User modes differ between networks, what is +i on one may not be +i
on another, but some, like +d are one of the uniform umodes.

"What does Windows have that Linux doesn't?" - One hell of a lot of bugs!
