tubes is a small program that provides an interface to irc bots that follows the UNIX philosophy. Messages to and from the server are exposed in FIFO buffers in /tmp named for the server and appended with either .in or .out: the server writes to in and the bot writes to out.


tubes’ defaults are configured within tubes.c by changing the values of the server and port variables at compile time. OpenSSL is a dependency of tubes; download the devel package from your distro.

To install, cd into the cloned directory and sudo make install. Some tweaking of the Makefile may be necessary, e.g. the location of local manpages.

Custom compiler flags can be appended to the defaults by passing a variable to make, e.g. CFLAGS=-fPIC.
