Adventurers' Help: ircgate


Service: the IRC Gateway of Nemesis - chatting between IRC and Nemesis

Description:
	The IRC Gateway of Nemesis uses the extended networking features
	of Nemesis' GameDriver (GD) to connect to a nearby IRC server and
	login as an IRC robot.

	The applied IRC nickname is the name of the MUD prepended with a
	pipe-symbol '|'. Here in Nemesis it is "|Nemesis".

	The robot provides basic IRC/MUD communication services that work
	like this:

	From IRC:
		/msg |Nemesis help

	IrcGate provides IRC users with 'who' and 'tell' services sending
	a 'tell' message to the addressed Mudder's screen like this:

		<nickname> on IRC tells you: <message>

	The other way around the MUD user is enabled to send a message
	into IRC by the command 'tell <nickname>@irc <message>'.

Syntax:
	tell <nickname>@irc <message>

Examples:
	tell kiri@irc Hello Kiri!
	You tell Kiri on IRC: Hello Kiri!

Note:
	Currently the IrcGate is activated in Nemesis and connected to
	irc.klingons.org:6667.

	The command 'talk' (or 'converse') also supports 'talk <nickname>@irc'
	(see 'help talk').

	IRC (InternetRelayChat) is a chat system like many others TODAY!
	Its development started in 1988 and it was (one of?) the first
	global internet-based chat system(s). For more about IRC, see here:
	https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Relay_Chat .

	The IRC Gateway has been developed by lynX - see 'whois lynx' or
	https://nemesis.de/lpc/bin/finger/lynx .
