in thread Robomonk - An IRC to PM Bridge

You've mistaken me.

Gaim has an IRC client,a Yahoo client etc with some Tk Widgets for the meatware to interact with, Bitlbee however provides an irc daemon for the user to interact with, via their favourite IRC client, and uses Gaim's client libraries to go off and connect to other chat networks for you.

(for those who have no idea what i'm taking about Bitlbee is an IRC server that connects to icq/msn/yahoo as a client

      ALthough it does make me wonder if i can get Bitlbee to connect to an irc server via one of the gaim plugins... (but that would be silly of fairly limited application)
