BitchX is a free software text-based IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client for
BitchX began as a script by Trench and HappyCrappy for the popular UNIX IRC
client ircII. Around Christmas of 1994 the script was patched directly into
the client by Colten Edwards (panasync).
As BitchX was developed over the years it both developed its own large set of
unique features, as well as acquiring many features from EPIC (another
popular ircII offshoot).
