==== Quick Installation ====
Circe is using [[MELPA]], an alternative package archive for emacs:
First, evaluate this:
(require 'package)
(add-to-list 'package-archives
            '("melpa-stable" . "http://stable.melpa.org/packages/") t)
Then, use package-install like with [[GNU ELPA]]:
M-x package-install RET circe RET
Then run M-x package-install RET circe RET
M-x package-install RET circe RET
After this, M-x circe should work.
==== Development Version ====
In the shell:
mkdir -d ~/.emacs.d/lisp/
cd ~/.emacs.d/lisp
git clone git://github.com/jorgenschaefer/circe.git
In the .emacs file:
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/lisp/circe")
(require 'circe)
Restart Emacs and and use M-x circe to connect to IRC

IRC client for Emacs.

Circe is an IRC client for Emacs. It integrates well with the rest of the editor, using standard Emacs key bindings and indicating activity in channels in the status bar so it stays out of your way unless you want to use it.

Features include:

  • Per-query and per-channel buffers
  • Auto-query buffers/windows (even on /MSG)*Nick-highlighting*An extensible ignore*Automatic splitting at word boundaries of long lines to be sent
  • Flood protection
  • Per-server (not per-channel) separate encoding and decoding coding systems; an Emacs feature even allows the client to transparently work with multiple encodings, such as when both Latin-1 and UTF-8 are used on a channel*Auto-join
  • NickServ-support
  • Netsplit handling
