IRC Client Daemon

IRC Client Daemon aka irccd is a full featured IRC bot written in C.

It runs as a daemon waiting for events. It's also possible to connect to more than one server with the same instance. It is designed in mind to be simple, fast and easy to use.

Irccd is also able to use optional Javascript plugins to write convenient plugins with system sandboxing.

Irccd is also controllable via unix sockets or through its dedicated irccdctl utility allowing you to use irccd as a message relayer and such.
