The jirc bot logs into an IRC channel and a Jabber conference room. It will relay conversations between the two rooms, identifying each of the speakers in braces (). Actions are forwarded as well. There are some in-room commands that jirc responds to: !help Display summary of available jirc commands. !who Display a list of people online on the other end of the bridge. !shutdown Immediately quit the rooms and shutdown.
The file specified with the --config option contains field/value pairs, one per line: field: value For example: mode: production The required configuration fields are: mode Can be either "production" or "test". When running in "test" mode, the nicks and channel names all have "-test" appended to them so that jirc behavior can be tested in separate channel. irc-nick The IRC nickname to sign in with.
