About Internet Relay Chat (IRC)
About IRC (Internet Relay Chat)
IRC is an online, interactive conversation between two or more users. Host ("server") computers throughout the world provide the programming to support IRC. Users connect with one of these servers to start their IRC sessions. The conversations take place in channels, which can be thought of as talking among a group of people. When you use IRC, you join one or more of these channels. Within each channel, you can "talk" with all of the other users who are on the channel at that time. There may be times when you want to send a private message to another user in a channel, and this feature is also available. Each IRC user specifies a nickname when connecting to an IRC host. Most users pick somewhat fanciful nicknames, so you might join a channel and find a conversation between "roo" and "Jumpy".

It is not necessary to say "Hello" or "Goodbye" individually to other users on a channel when you join or leave. One "Hello everybody" or "Bye all" is sufficient
