NAME

       irk - test program for irkerd

SYNOPSIS

       irk [target] [message text]

DESCRIPTION

       irk is a simple test program for irkerd(8). It will construct a simple JSON object and
       pass it to the daemon running on localhost.

OPTIONS

       irk takes the following options:

       target
           Which server and channel to join to announced the message. If not prefixed with
           "irc:", it will prefix "irc://chat.freenode.net/" to the argument before passing it
           directly to irkerd. This argument is passed as the "to" parameter in the JSON object.

       message
           Which message to send to the target specified above. If the string "-", the message
           will be read from standard input, with newlines stripped.

LIMITATIONS

       irk has no commandline usage and may be riddled with bugs.

       irk doesn't know how to talk to your favorite VCS. You will generally want to use
       irkerhook(1) instead

       irk has also all the limitations of irkerd.
