Overview

ircsrv - passive irc client
---------------------------
ircsrv is a minimalist passive irc client. It opens a connection to an IRC
server and simply maintains that connection (by responding to PINGs and 
reconnecting when necessary) while providing an interface for access to the
raw IRC protocol. The idea is to provide a simple way for commandline tools to
access IRC while staying as minimal as possible.

Installation
------------
Edit config.mk to match your local machine's configuration. ircsrv is
installed to /usr/local by default.

Then enter the following commands to build and install:

$ make 

then:

$ make install

(as root if necessary)

Running ircsrv
--------------
Simply invoke the 'ircsrv' command with the required arguments.
