One day i say to myself: “How can i send bash commands towards an irc query?”.
So I(rc)S(hell)B(ot) was born (:
It was written in perl language.
It is a simple and secure way to use a shell towards irc servers.
Simple cause you have to put only “!” (for channel output) or “@” (for notice output) or “?” (for raw commands) before a command.
Secure cause you use the authentication system of “serious” irc network (;
So, only identificated nicknames that are in users_list file can give commands to remote machines.
You have to edit settings and users_list files (mail_settings optional), then you can start isb.pl.
It also contains a log file to control connections.
Tested on *nix systems.
