Six – an open-source, text based IRC client mainly inspired by sic.

Six makes is easy to type and edit messages. Instead of raw input it uses readline, that’s why autocomplete and history can be easily implemented later. So, six is very small (~200 SLOC) and very hackable.

After your connected to the server and passed authorization step you can use these commands:
:j channel – join the channel
:l channel – leave the channel
:m nick msg – send message to the user
s nick – set default interlocutor to

The application author is Serge A. Zaitsev.
