... it does a bit more than that, but that is the gist of it. For a list of all the filters, run with -h


irssi/ is a thin perl wrapper around the python script, which is a total hack, but works. I am told irssi supports python embedding natively, but it doesn't seem to in Ubuntu's repository, which is what I use, so whatever. Use it like any other irssi module:

$ cp -av irssi/ ~/.irssi/scripts/
[irssi] /script load insub


The original version (of both names) can be found in the old/ directory. It mostly works the same, except does not support unicode in any form, and is written in terrible perl.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
