    Arrow IRC bot

    Hello, I was wondering how would I go about making a program to open a socket and go into a chat room in C++? What's the simplest way of doing this? I'm a noob that is learning C++ and the first project I wanna do is make an IRC bot but I haven't had any luck with it yet

    If you're new to C++, don't bother creating IRC bots at this point. The task is beyond your capabilities to start socket programming if you're just starting out. Make sure you're advanced enough to handle basic, standard C++, and work up the level of difficulty of your projects as you go along.

    Otherwise, what you will end up doing is frustrating yourself as well as the people that are trying to help you.
