I'm looking for a highly configurable IRC bot. Only requisite: it must not be a plugin to an existing IRC client like mIRC.
Which is where I'm having trouble. IRC bots a plenty, but almost all of them are scripts for mIRC or Xchat. And I don't use any of those. And no, I'm not going to switch.
What I'm looking for is a program that I can start separately, it connects to the channels on the server of my choosing and sits there, doing what I instruct it to do.
