The other night I was talking to a friend over IRC about how simple
IRC clients scripting would be if Ruby was used. Well, why not have a
whole client coded with Ruby? Since my experience/knowledge with Ruby
is not that great, I'd like to hear some thoughts about this.
Would Ruby be a good choice to code an IRC client? My goal is to
project/envision something that could rival mIRC. Aspects such as GUI,
speed, scripting/plugins need to be taken into account.
Hope anyone that is familiar with IRC and Ruby could help me with
their thoughts and ideas on this.
