[Log in to get rid of this advertisement]
hey there. I looking for an opensource example of an irc bot. all I want it for it to be able to send messages to a channel. I dont need kicking, banning, management, users, or trivia, none of that. Can anyone direct me to a project like this, or much better a c++ tutorial in coding a unix c++ irc bot. Cheers, xc.

Maybe (written in Python, not in C, but Python code is easy to read).

I can't give you an example but I sure can give you the structure

I've written alot of IRC clients, first in mIRC scripts, then using VB, then finally attempting C++..

Firstly you need some basic socket knowledge,

1) Sockets -

IRC runs on TCP/IP, port 6667 usually... Most IRC servers use IDENT clients... therefore when you create a bot you need 2 sockets.

The first is a tcp_connect (host:, port: 6667)

The second is a tcp_listen (host: localhost, port 22)

You only need the first to start off with, however by accepting IDENT requests, you speed up login time significantly, also certain IRC servers don't allow non-IDENT clients because of flooding.
