IRC - Linux Embedded systems

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a communication protocol that lets you communicate quickly by sending short messages either through a public channel or privately. IRC messages hosted by a server and channels can be thought of as existing on that server. Some projects or companies maintain their own IRC services. Client software required to use IRC is part of a standard Linux distribution. Windows users can download one of several IRC clients for that platform.This communication medium has some rules to make it useful and easy for those who participate.

Like using a mailing list, you should be courteous and respectful to the people participating:

  • Keep it short: The purpose of IRC is to exchange short messages, maybe a line or so. The act of being verbose is called flooding and is frowned on.
  • Don’t send status messages: Some IRC clients let you change your user name or send out messages after a span of inactivity. In a channel frequented by many people, this is nothing but noise and makes it hard for others participating to see the real discussion of the channel.
  • Don’t use Caps Lock: As in e-mail, it’s the same as shouting.
  • Don’t ask somebody to solve your problem: Also as on a mailing list, you can ask questions to get help, but the people in the channel have no obligation to help you or solve your problem. Just like any other online community, lots of people are willing to help you if you’re willing to help yourself.
