Chatting with IRC
IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. An IRC network consists of IRC Servers, which act as meeting places for getting together people who want to chat, and IRC Clients, which are programs that let you connect to an IRC server. There are several different IRC clients available today. These tutorials describe how to use the popular mIRC shareware program to participate in IRC communications.
