Internet relay chat (IRC)

Internet Relay Chat( IRC) is an online communication forum on the Internet. It is structured into hundreds of different discussion forums and party channels and allows Internet participants to communicate with each other worldwide.

For IRC communication, one simply selects a channel and a synonym; after that, all further entries appear on the screen of all participants in the same channel. On the other hand, their contributions also come through their own terminal. On most channels the communication language is English, but there are also channels in other languages. IRC channels are subject to dynamic development and exist until the last participant has left a channel. Popular IRC channels that have existed for years are Hottub and Initgame.

The Internet Relay Chat Protocol is a protocol of the Internet Engineering Task Force( IETF) and described in RFC 1459.
