This is a very simple program that establishes a connection to irc server, joins a channel and greets every nick that joins. This can be very helpful for all of you irc addicts that want to make your own bot written in C# language.

IrcBot.cs:
using System;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.Sockets;
using System.IO;
using System.Threading;
/*
* This program establishes a connection to irc server, joins a channel and greets every nickname that
* joins the channel.

class IrcBot
{
// Irc server to connect
public static string SERVER = "irc.df.lth.se";
// Irc server's port (6667 is default port)
private static int PORT = 6667;
// User information defined in RFC 2812 (Internet Relay Chat: Client Protocol) is sent to irc server
private static string USER = "USER CSharpBot 8 * :I'm a C# irc bot";
// Bot's nickname
private static string NICK = "BotNick";
// Channel to join
private static string CHANNEL = "#my_channel";
// StreamWriter is declared here so that PingSender can access it
public static StreamWriter writer;
static void Main (string[] args)
{
NetworkStream stream;
TcpClient irc;
string inputLine;
StreamReader reader;
string nickname;
try
{
irc =
new TcpClient (SERVER, PORT);
stream = irc.GetStream ();
reader =
new StreamReader (stream);
writer =
new StreamWriter (stream);
// Start PingSender thread
PingSender ping = new PingSender ();
ping.Start ();
writer.WriteLine (USER);
writer.Flush ();
writer.WriteLine ("NICK " + NICK);
writer.Flush ();
writer.WriteLine ("JOIN " + CHANNEL);
writer.Flush ();
while (true)
{
while ( (inputLine = reader.ReadLine () ) != null )
{
if (inputLine.EndsWith ("JOIN :" + CHANNEL) )
{
// Parse nickname of person who joined the channel
nickname = inputLine.Substring(1, inputLine.IndexOf ("!") - 1);
// Welcome the nickname to channel by sending a notice
writer.WriteLine ("NOTICE " + nickname + " :Hi " + nickname +
" and welcome to " + CHANNEL + " channel!");
writer.Flush ();
// Sleep to prevent excess flood
Thread.Sleep (2000);
}
}
// Close all streams
writer.Close ();
reader.Close ();
irc.Close ();
}
}
catch (Exception e)
{
// Show the exception, sleep for a while and try to establish a new connection to irc server
Console.WriteLine (e.ToString () );
Thread.Sleep (5000);
string[] argv = { };
Main (argv);
}
}
}
PingSender.cs:
using System;
using System.Threading;
/*
* Class that sends PING to irc server every 15 seconds
*/
class PingSender
{
static string PING = "PING :";
private Thread pingSender;
// Empty constructor makes instance of Thread
public PingSender ()
{
pingSender =
new Thread (new ThreadStart (this.Run) );
}
// Starts the thread
public void Start ()
{
pingSender.Start ();
}
// Send PING to irc server every 15 seconds
public void Run ()
{
while (true)
{
IrcBot.writer.WriteLine (PING + IrcBot.SERVER);
IrcBot.writer.Flush ();
Thread.Sleep (15000);
}
}
}
