There's also a channel specific to libstdc++ development, ##libstdcxx on Freenode [[irc://chat.freenode.net:6697/##libstdcxx]].

Summary

  • The IRC channel dedicated to GCC development is at irc.oftc.net/#gcc (for Fortran also: irc.oftc.net/#gfortran)
    NOTE! This channel is exclusively dedicated to the development of GCC. Questions regarding usage of GCC are not appropriate.

  • There is an IRC channel dedicated to helping users with GCC at irc.freenode.org/#gcc. Please use this channel for questions regarding GCC usage and general GCC discussion.

Development IRC

The #gcc IRC channel on OFTC irc://irc.oftc.net/#gcc is for people that want to discuss development of GCC.

Features include:

  • a lot of people interested in working on GCC
  • a bot that can give you information on GCC bugs (as well as weather reports)

  • the topic includes a hourly-updated count of regressions

  • add your own preferred feature here

There's also a channel specific to libstdc++ development, ##libstdcxx on Freenode irc://chat.freenode.net:6697/##libstdcxx.

Utilities

You may like to use this script (broken link FIXME!) that provides some nice Chatzilla commands that are useful while staying in #gcc. These include:

/gcc-public and /gcc-private

  • Switch between sending public messages to gccbot (preceded by a percent sign, e.g. %weather or private messages (using /msg .

/tell, /praise /lart /insult

  • Shortcuts for sending these commands to gccbot. Example: /tell xyz i have a patch for pr c++/5 or /lart xyz trying to understand push_secondary_reloads

/weather:

  • Can be a nice way to tell gccbot that you are there, so that it delivers %tell messages for you. My startup script for #gcc for example, has the three-command sequence /gcc-private /weather /gcc-public The default location is in the Chatzilla preference gccbot.location

/open:

  • Not really related to #gcc but I found it disturbing that when you close the last Mozilla page, there is no way to open a new one except by clicking on a URL in the chat windows. So I added this command that fires a new browser window (optionally on the given URL).

Wishlist

('It is useless to leave wishes here, report them to the developer of gccbot')

I would like gccbot to recognize /notice messages, and reply to me in the same way.

I would like gccbot to send %tell messages as notices.
