IRC Chatbots

Internet Relay Chat


Even though they may accept natural language commands, IRC bots are often more like “do-engines” and incorrectly referred to as “chatbots”. XDCC now refers to IRC bots running file sharing programs in general. The Swedish lyrics of Boten Anna tell the story of a female IRC user mistaken for an IRC bot by the vocalist. To connect a Pandorabot with IRC, download Eggdrop TCL scripts alice.tcl and egghttp.tcl (may be broken). Twitter bot @suqmuhnutz is an example of a realtime Twitter-IRC bridge using Eggdrop and MegaHAL AI. Twitter bot @scribbington by @tenach is another example of a randomly tweeting Python IRC chatbot.
