You probably wonder what this is and why I wrote this. Some more information can be found in the DESIGN document that is included in this package.
This software is written by Johannes Verelst and is licensed through the GPL license (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html).
Note that this is pre-alpha code, it probably does a bit that you want, but don't email me bugreports or feature requests. It is under heavy development.
If this program doesn't run try to install corectly all required perl modules yourself.
The idea for this program came when I was getting annoyed by the fact that I had to use different programs for both IRC and MSN. Since I don't know of any good MSN clients that can do IRC too (on unix, ofcourse), I started thinking about the other way around: an IRC client that can do MSN.
When I saw a piece of software written by Adam Swann that allows easy connectivity to MSN with perl, I decided to write an IRC server in perl that would connect to MSN for you. This is the result.
