Thanks to the wickedpsyched.com crew for getting this compiled.
NOTE: If your not jail-broke,ssh,sftp-server enabled , stop
w00t ! stand alone irc client for the iPhone.
BitchX is a terminal irc client(command line).
Requirements: Jail-broke , ssh , mobileterminal+vt100 , /bin/login , /usr/share/terminfo/76/vt100
BitchX binary goes in /usr/bin
Don't forget to set the permissions !
chmod +x /usr/bin/*
chmod +x /usr/share/terminfo/76/*
I added this line to the # Aliases section of my /var/root/.profile
alias bx='BitchX -n rOOt4rd3d irc.osx86.hu:6667'
That makes BitchX start with the bx command and sets my nick and my server.
Tweak to your favorite server/channel and add more alias= , bxi , bxdev , bxgui , etc.
After you join the server type in /ajoin #iphone then /save and now everytime you run the bx command , sets nick,server,port,channel.
NOTE: Running an irc client as root can be hazardous to your system. Don't run any commands other people tell you to run unless your 100 percent sure of what the command does.

Do you need the vt100 branch of mobileterminal?
Which TERM to use, vt100 or xterm-color?

Im using the mobileterminal with vt100 support.
Make sure this file :
is in /usr/share/terminfo/76 (the last 2 directories you have to create)
Also make sure the binary file Login is in /usr/bin , its in the binkit under /bin
This is my var/root/.profile (you must create the .profile file)
alias pico='pico -w'
alias rm='rm -i'
alias nosound="launchctl unload /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/coreaudiod.plist"
alias sound="launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/coreaudiod.plist"
alias bx='BitchX -n rOOt4rd3d irc.osx86.hu:6667'
# User specific environment
Pico/NES-sound-fix will also work if you follow these instructions and copy my .profile.

Get sftp-server running and use SCP. Right click , new , file.
08-16-2007, 10:21 PM #13
Ok now I get this error and the terminal closes
execlp: /bin/login: Permission denied
08-16-2007, 10:33 PM #14
chmod +x /bin/*
you didnt set permissions on login binary.
BitchX is now installable via the iInstaller.app
There is a God !
Tips still useful.

i follow your instructions, for some reason my mobileterm is still not in color, and everything is coming out with colortags along with the regular text. i install mobileterm from installer.app a while ago.
i download vt100 and put it in the directory and made it +x and created the .profile , bx works, but the color doesnt seem to be.

BitchX scrolls a ansi picture at load. Bash just spits out garbage font on iPhone. If you wait , you will join , if you followed directions.
Sucks on Edge.
plz read 1st post for more info on getting started :/
If you haven't created/edited a .profile use this command to start BitchX from bash :
BitchX -n nickname irc.server-name.com:6667
BitchX is case sensitive !
