Internet Relay Chat ModThis mod provides a two-way communication between the in-game chat, and an arbitrary IRC channel.
This is done by connecting a bot to the channel, that acts as a "proxy" for messages.
The code of the actual mod is released under the BSD 2 Clause License (see LICENSE.txt).
Licenses for modules/libraries used are on their respective LICENSE files.
Check out our official IRC channel ##mt-irc-mod on Freenode!
Note: Should work fine under *nix, but for Windows it needs some special setup (old alternative).
Important Note: If you intend to run this on a server where non-ASCII characters may be used (e.g. non-english-speaking servers), be sure your environment's language encoding is set to UTF-8. Otherwise, you may see errors about "character conversion failed" or "invalid wstring". Thanks to fireglow for helping sort this out.
By the way, if you want to see a demo of this mod, join #minetest at irc.inchra.net.
