» Description
SmartIRC is your go-to library for interfacing with IRC networks. All you need is PHP 5.3 or later.

Full feature list:
-------------------------------------
- Fully object-oriented programmed
- Your bot class can be inline in the same file you call SmartIRC from, or included as an external file
- Every received IRC message is parsed into an object you can easily get information from
(containing the following info: rawmessage, from, nick, ident, host, type, params, message, channel)
- Make your bots using Action Handlers and Time Handlers, which register custom callbacks when various events happen or on time intervals, respectively – or, extend the Net_SmartIRC class to add (or override) handlers directly using individual server message types
- Flood protection which uses a send buffer with a queue that has 3 priority levels (high, medium, low) plus a bypass level (critical)
- Nick collision detection and handling
- Auto-retry during initial connection attempt
- Auto-reconnect if connection is lost, which will re-join to the channels it was in before
- Debugging/logging system with log levels (destination can be file, stdout, syslog or browserout)
- Channel syncing (tracking of users/modes/topic etc in objects)
- Customizable CTCP VERSION reply
