This is a mirror of http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=931 This is an IRC client which runs on Vim. It has some of the features IRC users might expect, such as multiple servers connectivity, DCC SEND/CHAT features etc.. Read the plugin file for more feature info and usage instructions. For those who are unfamiliar with IRC in general, I recommend visiting this site first: http://www.irchelp.org/ If you have any questions, problems, or suggestions etc., /query or e-mail the maintainer. Do not direct them to the channel #vim please. Screenshots: http://www.dd.iij4u.or.jp/~madokam/img/vimirc04.png http://www.dd.iij4u.or.jp/~madokam/img/vimirc05.png (invoking web browser) Here is a minimum set of knowledge required to start/exit the script: To start it, type :VimIRC<CR> Then you'll be prompted for some user info (nick, full name etc.). Upon successfull connection, try some normal commands you're familiar with ("j", "k", "<C-W>-"things and so on). Typing "i" or "I" will let you in to the IRC-command mode, where you can enter commands such as "/join #vim" and messages. To quit, just press "Q". Another method of quitting: get out of the loop with "<C-C>", then type :VimIRCQuit<CR> If you change your mind and want to get online again, press "<Space>" on any of the VimIRC windows. Have fun!
