Projects / IRCG


IRCG is a solution for delivering XML messages to huge numbers of clients in real-time. IRCG leverages the power of established IRC products and the PHP programming language for providing low-latency message streams over persistent HTTP connections. The use of time-proven technology and an easy-to-adapt scripting language is designed to reduce development time and to maximize the value of existing hardware investments. Typical applications of IRCG include online gaming communities and chat systems. IRCG is fully compatible with the ActionScript XMLSocket technology found in Flash-enabled clients.
