That way sic +becomes an even better IRC client. + +History +------- +If you want to store what is being said, you can use the tee(1) command +with sic: + + # sic | tee -a sic_history + +Highlighting +------------ +If you want to receive an alert in case someone mention your username, +you can use awk(1): + + # sic | awk '/username/ ~ {printf "\a"}1' + +Using a tool like awk(1) would even allows you to be highlighted on +specific channels for example. You can of course combine it with the +tee(1) command above: + + # sic | tee -a sic_history | awk '/username/ ~ {printf "\a"}1'
