Parent article: Using Irssi to communicate within free software projects

This article could have been a lot more useful to me if it went into more depth and taught me new things about irssi that I didn't already know. I expect many LWN readers who are already familiar with how free software is developed feel the same way. It was just starting to get interesting when it ended.

Seems to be an extended advert for IRSSI. However it still wasn't clear to me what this client does which my preferred client (XChat) doesn't.

Rich.

... and no screen shots either.

Advantages over xchat? "Runnable in screen(1)", mostly. This matters more to some people than others.

Lots of IRC clients run well in screen, and *most* window different channels. I've never seen that doesn't besides the original irc and ircii.

I guess this thing is scriptable in Perl.. and that's useful for Joey, not for me. If I had a need for a scriptable IRC client I'd probably use erc in emacs. If I have to use a crusty old language that I don't know at least it's going to be an interesting one. :)

By the way, I use "lostirc', still a gtk client but with a teeny tiny footprint compared to xchat.
