Dirk dub Build Status

Dirk is an IRC client library for the D programming language.

It aims for a complete and correct implementation of the IRC client protocol (RFC 2812) and related protocols (CTCP and DCC) with a safe interface.

Dirk aims to be as efficient as possible (in terms of both CPU and memory) to cater to the requirements of any imaginable use of IRC.

For an IRC bot framework built on Dirk, see Diggler.

Dirk depends on libev for the event loop.

Please report bugs and requests to the issue tracker. Thanks!
