Which IRC client do you use? - Off topic
I've been thinking of a project lately, where every irc query between two users is encrypted using a public key.
The general idea is that this way, even someone intercepts the message, it'll be rendered useless.

This is superior to traditional key exchange, since it eliminates the problem of user genuinity at KeyX initalization.

The main problem would be, among unixhub's users, there isn't much uniform when it comes to IRC clients, so I made this poll to get a fair idea of which clients are in use.

(since this is unixhub, I've choosen to omit GUI irc clients)

edit: I realized some people use xchat

By "irc query between two users" do you mean private chat?
Yes. --------------

(mostly) irssi user here. A client is missing in the list: ii :)
I use it sometimes when I need to quicly connect to a single chan. I use ptii (core) as a frontend. the whole script is browsable here.

It might be easy to add encryption to this :)

Yeah, I tryed ii a few months ago. Very nice, but unusable for normal irc-sesstions. Last time I'd used it, because I was too lazy to set up irssi. I left irssi for 2 months because theming it was a nightmare :D.

ii rocks.

As a stand-alone, it's a pain in the neck, yeah:
Code:
echo 'Hi everybody !' > \#unixhub/in; tail \#unixhub/out
.

But within a good script with some small tools, it becomes really usable, check out this shot.
It's tmux with ii + tail -f + ptii.

And yeah. ii rocks.

I use Xchat occasionally, same with irssi, but lately have gone back to weechat.

I used it with $SHELL functions. Looks like this:

Could you develop ? What do you call a $SHELL function ? Seems interesting :D

Well, it isn't very nice.

Code:
function chan() {
export Serv "$1"
export CHAN "$2"
}

function join() {
echo "/j $CHAN > $HOME/irc/$Serv/in
}

function send() {
echo "$1" > $HOME/irc/$Serv/$CHAN/in
}

After this I use simply two terms. One term for send() and another one to run
Code:
while :; do; cat $HOME/irc/$Serv/$CHAN/out; sleep 1; done

Very dirty as you see :D
But that was the first way appeared in my fabulous mind :P.
