I have used IRC from a python shell writing directly to the socket. Not because I had to, but it was fun for a while. Just shows how simple the protocol is.WizardStan said:Real time group chat. It's a standard communication protocol and doesn't require sign up (in most cases) so basically anyone can just connect and go.El Jefe said:oops, I kinda said that wrong, I know how to use, but what I meant was, why would you use it? whats the point?
Even if the Pandora came with no other software but the OS and network connectivity, a basic IRC client could be written in under 10 minutes from scratch. The same cannot be said for any other IM client. Except maybe that protocol G-Talk uses. Or ICQ, but who uses that anymore?
