 +[[load]] map \\
 +[[map]] //​[<​server>​]//​
 +This script implements the [[map]] command in the client. ​ The [[map]] command
 +shows you a topological map of the irc network from the point of view of your
 +server. ​ Not every server supports it, so you can [[load]] this script and it
 +will seamlessly do the job in the client as needed.
 +The [[map]] command necessarily uses the [[links]] command, which some,
 +hyper-paranoid server admins do not like non-operators using. ​ If you are 
 +not an oper, use this command with caution.
 +Originally, there was the //imap// script. ​ It was written by daemon and has
 +historically been shipped with the client. ​ It supported arbitrary pivoting
 +(ie, being able to get a topology map centered in any server)
 +The undernet was inspired by this script, and implemented a server-side ​
 +version and called it [[map]], but it didn't implement all the features ​
 +of the //imap// script, like pivoting.
 +This script is called //map// and tries to re-implement the undernet
 +command for those servers that don't have it.  It was written by wd
 +and first appeared in epic4-1.1.6.
