`ZyklonB' is an experimental IRC bot, building upon the concept of my other
VitaminA IRC bot. The main characteristic of these two bots is that they run
plugins as coprocesses, which allows for enhanced reliability and programming
language freedom.

While originally intended to be a simple C99 rewrite of the original bot, which
was written in the GNU dialect of AWK, it fairly quickly became a playground
where I added everything that seemed nice.

Also included is a simple IRC daemon that mostly follows the RFC's but is
limited to single-server networks, due to the protocol being incredibly ugly and
tricky to implement correctly (the poor quality of the RFC's doesn't help). It
is designed for use as a regular user application rather than a system daemon.

So far the daemon lacks important features, so don't even bother trying it.

Building and Running
Build dependencies: openssl, clang, pkg-config, make, awk, sh

If you don't have Clang, you can edit the Makefile to use GCC or TCC, they work
just as good. But there's no CMake support yet, so I force it in the Makefile.

$ git clone https://github.com/pjanouch/ZyklonB.git
$ make

That is all, no installation is required, or supported for that matter.

First you might want to generate a configuration file:
$ ./zyklonb --write-default-config
$ ./kike --write-default-config

After making any necessary edits to the file (there are comments to aid you in
doing that), simply run the appropriate program with no arguments:
$ ./zyklonb
$ ./kike

ZyklonB stays running in the foreground, so I recommend launching it inside
a Screen or tmux session. kike, on the other hand, immediately forks into the
background. Use something like `killall' if you want to terminate it.

Client Certificates
`kike' uses SHA1 fingerprints of SSL client certificates to authenticate users.
To get the fingerprint from a certificate file, use:
$ openssl x509 -noout -in cert.pem -sha1 -fingerprint

I am not an antisemitist, I'm just being an offensive asshole with the naming.
And no, I'm not going to change the names.
