Internet Relay Chat v2.1.1
What the fuck?
irc2.1.1 is the oldest ircd known, with an old version of the IRC protocol, a deprecated installation system, etc.
But it is really a part of history of the Internet, and I would try to do an usage version.
Note that this version has been released in 1988!
Things I do in this version:
- Change some things in code to port it to Linux system.
- Usage of auto-tools instead of an old editable Makefile.
Get the archive here:
It contains the IRC Daemon, IRC Client and two IRC Services.
Read the README file for more information.
Please read the INSTALL file.
Because no one cares about this, I made a screenshot to show you it is really useless but beautiful!
