|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
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
