Irssi is a modular IRC client for UNIX that only has a text mode user interface. Irssi isn't really even IRC specific anymore, there's already working SILC, and ICB, modules available.

The irssi homepage is where more information on this program and the latest release, scripts, themes and plugins are available.


Here is an example way to start the program to connect to the european undernet server:

irssi -c

Once the program is running, you can join a channel: /join #LinuxQuestions

change your name: /nick LQwriter

leave a channel: /part #LinuxQuestions

close a chat: /window kill

and close the program: /quit
