       ScrollZ - An advanced ircII-based IRC client


       scrollz  [-4] [-6] [-c chan] [-p portno] [-f] [-F] [-h host] [-H host] [-C name] [-s] [-S]
       [-n] [-d] [-q] [-a] [-b] [-l file] [-I file] [-L file] [nickname] [serverlist]


       ScrollZ is advanced IRC client based on ircII code. It adds  features  normally  found  in
       ircII scripts.

       The  main  difference  between  these scripts and ScrollZ is the code. Where ircII scripts
       take a lot of disk and memory space and run slow, ScrollZ only takes  a  couple  of  extra
       kilobytes  compared  to stock ircII client yet runs faster than any ircII script. This was
       accomplished by using C code instead of ircII scripting language. This reduces memory  and
       CPU  usage  and  code  tends  to  run  faster.  ScrollZ includes features such as built-in
       userlist, shitlist, improved  scripting,  Blowfish  based  encryption,  features  for  IRC
       operators and user friendly features such as completion for nicks and channels.
