    Need some help with making irc bot

    maybe wrong section or forum to ask but im desperate ^^

    any one got a irc bot with just functions to joining a channel and nothing else, wich i can learn from?

    i tryed google but they are all so incredible advanced wich looks like a mess for me just a simple connect and join bot is enough

    And what purpose would "learning" this serve, aside from disrupting/destroying someone's IRC?

    Yes, I was confused, sorry about that - although not quite as confused as to think you were about to write a virus.

    I just read this bit:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IRC_bot

    Don't know how to write my own tho'. It sound like you need a fair bit of socket programming and stuff to do that.

    long way: read about socket programming and the irc-protcoll
    short way: use a debugger or strace utility to check what some simple irc client is doing if you connect and join a channel with it. than reproduce that stuff and hope for the best

    Somewhat off topic.... if you know Java, google pircbot. If there was a C++ equivalent, it would probably be what you want now.
