SYNOPSIS

scrollz [-4] [-6] [-c chan] [-p portno] [-f] [-F] [-h host] [-H host] [-C name] [-s] [-S] [-n] [-d] [-q] [-a] [-b] [-l file] [-I file] [-L file] [nickname] [serverlist]

DESCRIPTION

ScrollZ is advanced IRC client based on ircII code. It adds features normally found in ircII scripts.

The main difference between these scripts and ScrollZ is the code. Where ircII scripts take a lot of disk and memory space and run slow, ScrollZ only takes a couple of extra kilobytes compared to stock ircII client yet runs faster than any ircII script. This was accomplished by using C code instead of ircII scripting language. This reduces memory and CPU usage and code tends to run faster. ScrollZ includes features such as built-in userlist, shitlist, improved scripting, Blowfish based encryption, features for IRC operators and user friendly features such as completion for nicks and channels.
