 ii is for advanced users, please use standard tools like awk, sed and grep for
 this. This can be done easily and will not bloat the code.
 Where is a graphical interface?
 Basically ii follows the UNIX philosophy so it is only file based. But it

 this. Actually I use ii in combination with vim, multitail and screen and it works
 like a charm.
 Which commands are supported?
 j (join or msg), t (topic), a (away), n (nick), l (leave). The missing are
 obsolete or can be easily used by typing the IRC commands itself (i.e. /WHO
 instead of /who).
 How can I recognize queries?

 What other fancy stuff can I do with ii?
 It is very easy to write irc bots in ii:
-tail -f \#/out | while read foo; do name=echo $foo | awk '{print $2}' | sed 's,<\\(.*\\)>,\\1,'; if 0 -eq expr $RANDOM % 10 then echo "$name: WHAT??" ; fi; done
+	#!/bin/sh
+	chan="#yourchannel"
+	tail -f "${chan}/out" | while read line; do
+		cmd=$(printf '%s\n' "$line" | cut -d ' ' -f 4-)
+		name=$(printf '%s\n' "$line" | cut -d ' ' -f 3 | tr -d '<>')
+		if [ "$cmd" = "!rand" ]; then
+			r="$RANDOM"
+			if expr "$r" "%" "10"; then
+				echo "$name: $r" >> "${chan}/in"
+			fi
+		fi
+	done
 This will just spam a channel but think about using nagios2irc or you can
 use ii to generate channel stats. Your imagination should be boundless.
