Not familiar with Xchat. I never liked mIRC - too damn awkward. In my doz days I used Pirch98. It's still out there. Main advantage over mIRC is the ability to log in multiple servers at once. I'd say that's a must for IRC, but the servers I used to go to are pretty quiet now.

I like xchat, but i always used to use bitchx since I used to irc by ssh-ing into another machine.

but irc is too full of little wankers nowdays, so I don't even go to any servers anymore.

Mirc might be down on a few features, but it contains one of the most important features -- properly being able to resume downloads. So far, though X-chat and Konversation apparently suppot it, it hasn't worked once, and I've tried quite a few times.

mIRC has supported multiple servers for years dude!

I'd hope not ... mIRC is an abomination of
an IRC client, like winDOHs is of an OS.
Window's has it's uses. MIRC doesn't, however. Anyhow,


As for the original poster, I'd say you'll want to learn PERL. It's much more powerful than IRCscript, and most irc clients for linux use it.

Not only that, but it's extendable to tons of applications including web, server scripting, and tons of other stuff. It's a highly used language.

BITCH-X supports perl scripting as well as other linux based irc clients.

Some 'eggdrops' are even coded by perl.

How else would you suggest that we successfully and easily resume downloads? Xchat has the function, and probably Konversation, but it doesn't work on neither. And as I've heard, it works fine and dandy every time on MIRC.

Thats something I've overlooked. That is a handy feature. I do use MIRC on my windows box. It's okay... but I like ksirc on linux the most.

MIRC does DCC very well
