IRC Gateway Functions

Introduction

With IRCG you can rapidly stream XML data to thousands of concurrently connected users. This can be used to build powerful, extensible interactive platforms such as online games and webchats. IRCG also features support for a non-streaming mode where a helper application reformats incoming data and supplies static file snippets in special formats such as cHTML (i-mode) or WML (WAP). These static files are then delivered by the high-performance web server.

Up to v4, IRCG runs under these platforms:

  • AIX

  • FreeBSD

  • HP-UX

  • Irix

  • Linux

  • Solaris

  • Tru64

  • Windows
