ircio(1) A quaint little program to make irc life PING free


This little program connects to the server (given as arg 1) on the given port (given as arg 2). It then accepts input from stdin and sends it to that server. Likewise, it reads stuff sent from the server and sends it to stdout. Simple? Yes, it is. But wait! There's more! It also intercepts server PINGs and automatically responds to them. This frees up the process that starts ircio (such as IRCII) to pause without fear of being pooted off the net.
