I'm not aware of any module designed for parsing arbitrary text in
that way, although it may be possible to subvert something to the
task. If you are following the usual IRC client behavioural pattern,
then just suck up the line - then see if the first non-whitespace
character is a '/', then react accordingly. Simple.
