What I'm trying to do, is have control over the world, as well as connect it to irc, so the irc:// link doesn't really do what I want, entirely.
I've tried using shell() to send out telnet commands, to connect to irc that way, but..
The calling proc will sleep until the command is finished executing. "
Because of this, I can't do something like:
shell("telnet linux.gdiracing.com 6667")
shell("user ident host linux.gdiracing.com :[ckey]")
(And I was hoping that'd do it, so I could figure out how to intercept stuff like PING, but it doesn't work, so..)
I've also looked around in irc.dms, but it doesn't seem like I can do too much to it.
Has anyone tried to do this with success? Am I thinking outside the scope of possiblities? Does BYOND even care about IRC anymore? :o
