Irssi

Irssi

Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC and ICB protocols via plugins.

Being a fullscreen, termcap based client, with many features, Irssi is easily extensible through scripts and modules.

Unlike some text mode IRC clients, Irssi is not based on the ircII code, and was written from scratch.

The software is written in the C programming language and in normal operation uses a text-mode user interface.
