ircio - A quaint little program to make irc life PING free
This little program connects to the server (given as arg 1) on the given port
(given as arg 2). It then accepts input from stdin and sends it to that
server. Likewise, it reads stuff sent from the server and sends it to stdout.
Simple? Yes, it is. But wait! There's more! It also intercepts server PINGs
and automatically responds to them. This frees up the process that starts
ircio (such as IRCII) to pause without fear of being pooted off the net.
