Erm, pretty sure weechat is a CLI based IRC program. There's plenty of interfaces for it that expose a GUI, but at its core it's command line.

There's a distinction to be made between CLI and TUI (Text user interface, curses and the like) isn't there? I think maybe that's what godmodus was getting it (considering TUIs to be a kind of GUI).

I made a mistake man, thanks for the back up though.

I had an old java based chat client in mind that I used a long time ago and had a similar name.

irssi is as much a TUI as weechat
