in reply to RFC: Tutorial - IRC Programming In Perl

Eh, us "1337 aye-are-cee perlmonkies" require "sys/" and RFC 1459.

Joking aside, I would be hard pressed to see a situation where I'd use anything but PoCo::IRC for anything client side. As far as I know, Perl hasn't really been used significantly on the server side. Well, perhaps services count but that's kind of server side bot programming.

I don't care for their licensing bs but it's worth mentioning that xchat, a bloated GUI IRC client, is scriptable in Perl.

pircd is a functional but dated Perl irc server. This helped me a lot back in the day.

One good resource is the source. I found the documentation and header files in ircd ratbox quite useful when I was doing some more technical stuff on EFnet. doesn't work for me so here's the [rfc://nnnn] style links.

RFC 1459: Internet Relay Chat Protocol
RFC 2810: Internet Relay Chat: Architecture
RFC 2811: Internet Relay Chat: Channel Management
RFC 2812: Internet Relay Chat: Client Protocol
RFC 2813: Internet Relay Chat: Server Protocol

[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
