Projects / IMIRC


IMIRC is an AOL Instant Messenger to IRC gateway. It connects to an IRC network as an IRC server, so it requires a local ircd to run. IMIRC creates nicknames for AIM users as they sign on, and converts HTML codes, which are used by AIM for formatting, to IRC's control code equivalents. Please note that you must either have your own working IRC server or you must find someone willing to let you link to theirs.

          Release Notes: An important connection-handling fix for a bug that caused IMIRC to use all available CPU resources.

          •  17 Feb 2002 23:26

            Release Notes: In this release, connection handling has been cleaned up and the optimizations added for poll-based handling in RC7 have also been applied to select-based handling. Also, the combination of RC7, Net::OSCAR 0.60, and poll-based handling was dangerously broken, so this release requires Net::OSCAR 0.61.

            Wonderful Product
            I've been using aimirc on and off for the past few months. Both on the server, as well as my local IRCd and have been nothing but impressed. It seems like everytime I come up with a great new idea I go get the latest CVS version and it has already been implemented. Most importantly Matt is always around for help, when needed. I look forward to the new aimirc 2.0 release. All in all, aimirc is a wonderful product that Matt Sachs has put out and I encourage everyone needing some form of AIM client for Linux to try it out, sure does beat the heck out of the not-so-stable GAIM, and the buggy-as-hell TiK clients. ;-)
