“BitchX was started by Trench and HappyCrappy as a script for the ircII IRC client. Around Christmas of 1994, the script was patched directly into the client by Colten Edwards (this was around the time of BitchX-36). Now, nearly three years old in its client form, BitchX continues to expand and change around the IRC of today.”
A lot of scripts are available for BitchX which provide batch tasks or automation.
