       BitchX is a VERY heavily modified ircII client. It includes many things
       such  as built in CDCC (XDCC) offering, built in flood protection, etc.
       It is easier to script things in BitchX because unlike  plain,  vanilla
       ircII,  half  the  script  does	not have to be devoted to changing the
       appearance of ircII. It also includes many other new features, such  as
       port scanning, advanced TCL, a CD player, a mail client, screening pro
       cess, etc.
