CWirc - X-Chat IRC client plug-in to transmit Morse code

CWirc is a plugin for the X-Chat IRC client to transmit raw Morse code over the internet using IRC servers as reflectors. The transmitted Morse code can be received in near real-time by other X-Chat clients with the CWirc plugin. CWirc tries to emulate a standard amateur radio rig: it sends and receives Morse over virtual channels, and it can listen to multiple senders transmitting on the same channel.

Morse code is keyed locally using a straight or iambic key connected to a serial port, or using the mouse buttons, and sound plays through the sound card, or through an external sounder.
