shirc is a shell irc-like system.
It started as a mean to write a collective article about free software.

It could be used to chat with more then 4 users on a single host, where
ytalk would give very limited space for each. All conversations are logged
in a world-readable-and-writeable file, so everybody can read or fake the

User defined commands are supported, thus allowing users to define encryption
filters for input and output (introducing a bit more privacy then the core
system offers).

If you have 'splitvt' installed you'll get a comfortable interface,
otherwise you'll have mixed input/output. You can get splitvt from:


To define a new command you just define a shell function whose name is
composed by the literal `CMD_' and the command name. For example, to
provide a "/scream" command you'd define a shell command "CMD_scream".
To have the /help command show an help line for you newly defined command
you have to write that line starting with #HELP#. Well, now you can stick
all these commands in a file and /load them from within shirc. 


The $HOME/.shirc/onstart file will be sourced at startup. All the shirc commands
contained therein will be executed

The $HOME/.shirc/onjoin file will be sourced after each of our joins
