command | my_irc
Pipe whatever you want to this function, it will, if everything goes well, be redirected to a channel or a user on an IRC server.
Please note that :
- I am not responsible of flood excesses you might provoke.
- that function does not reply to PINGs from the server. That's the reason why I first write in a temporary file. Indeed, I don't want to wait for inputs while being connected to the server. However, according to the configuration of the server and the length of your file, you may timeout before finishing.
- Concerning the server, the variable content must be on the form "irc.server.org 6667" (or any other port). If you want to make some tests, you can also create a fake IRC server on "localhost 55555" by using
netcat -l -p 55555
- Concerning the target, you can choose a channel (beginning with a '#' like "#chan") or a user (like "user")
- The other variables have obvious names.
