Erebot module to connect to an IRC server
Connect to an IRC server, with optional security upgrade This module is required in order for Erebot to work properly. You should probably always install it. It sends credentials to the server whenever the bot connects. It also supports the STARTTLS extension (security upgrade), which can be used to connect to an IRC server on a port shared by both plain-text and encrypted connections. Set the "upgrade" paramater to "1" in the connection URL to make use of this feature. Eg. "irc://irc.example.com?upgrade=1" Please note that Secure IRC connections (IRCS) do not have any need for that "security upgrade" feature, as they are already encrypted when established.
