hello all

i have a small irc server that im currently testing... going to use it for my friends in town
i already found a perl client that i have installed on my website... cgiirc and it works great... but im trying to figure out if i can make or find a php script that can show if i have users in my chatroom and if the server is even running

i tried searching google but i cant find anything that can teach me how to creat a simple one

i would like to learn how to use php.. not just copy and paste some code and call it quits

if anyone can point me in the right direction that would be great

untill then il still be browsing around google to see what i can find

thanks all
