Auto-Identify to Anope NickServ on IrCQNet

By gooshie on Apr 11, 2010

Place this snippet into your xchat user folder to auto-identify to NickServ on IrCQNet. You must have the password set within Network list. The advantage to adding this is that it will identify even after you have connected and change to another nickname for instance if you have an away nick. This snippet could be easily adapted to any server.

w0w and I'm posting simple pop up menu scripts in mIRC... You smart kids. lol

A few months ago I switched to using linux. I began using Xchat because mIRC does not run well in wine. Also, this allows me to learn perl and I hope to post more perl scripts here in the future. I have a couple I am working on that run on their own without Xchat.

You are correct most installations install python support and if not can be added as can ruby and tcl. There may be support for other languages as well. Most people choose to create Xchat add-ons in perl and the perl support module is possibly better written.

Perl is quite nice on XChat, I believe that XChat supports Python too but I do not see that many Python scripts on the web that are made for XChat.
