      1 Irc it (ii)
      2 ===========
      3 ii is a minimalist FIFO and filesystem-based IRC client. It creates an irc
      4 directory tree with server, channel and nick name directories. In every
      5 directory a FIFO in file and a normal out file is created.
      6 
      7 The in file is used to communicate with the servers and the out files contain
      8 the server messages. For every channel and every nick name there are related in
      9 and out files created. This allows IRC communication from command line and
     10 adheres to the Unix philosophy.
     11 example
     12 
     13 Join a channel as follows: `$ echo "/j #wmii" > in`
     14 and ii creates a new #wmii (channel) directory with in and out files.
     15 
     16 	irc/irc.oftc.net
     17 	|-- #wmii
     18 	|   |-- in
