Eggdrop is an IRC bot written in C, which sits on channels and takes
protective measures, such as preventing it from being taken over (in
the few ways that anything can), recognizing banned users to reject
them, recognizing privileged users to give them operator status,
punishing users for things like flooding, among innumerable others.
All of this is completely configurable, and can be disabled or enabled
as you wish in the configuration file. Also, it's very easy to expand
and customize with Tcl scripts and C modules, making it possible to
adapt Eggdrop to any special need you might have.
