Abstract
--------
ii is a minimalistic FIFO and filesystem based IRC client.
It creates an irc directory tree with server, channel and
nick name directories.
In every directory a FIFO file (in) and and normal file (out)
is placed.
The in file is used to communicate with the servers and the out
files include the server messages. For every channel and every nick
name there will be new in and out files.
The basic idea of this is to be able to communicate with an IRC
server with standard command line tools.
For example if you want to join a channel just do echo "/j #channel" > in
and ii creates a new channel directory with in and out file.

Installation
------------
Edit config.mk to match your local setup. ii is installed into
/usr/local by default.

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install ii (if
necessary as root):

    $ make clean install

Running ii
------------
Simply invoke the 'ii' command with required arguments

To make ii a bit more comfortable use it in combination with the multitail
program and for example with vim. Run vim in the server directory and use
key mapping like:
map w1 :.w >> \#ii/in<cr>
map w2 :.w >> \#wmii/in<cr>
to post to channels. 
If you use the next editor line for a new posting you can use ctrl-p for nick
completion if you wrote the nick in the past.
Thanks to Matthias Kopfermann for this hint.

-------------
No configuration is needed.

Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
