Darkbot is a very fast and small program written in C language which connects to IRC from an Unix or Windows operating system and automatically "talks" and responds to users' questions.

Originally created by Jason Hamilton as an aid for help channels to answer repeated questions from its virtually unlimited database, it has became a very popular talking robot in a generic sense, being used all over IRC networks for different purposes and in 18 languages.

Data can be added to it and managed dynamically online or edited in its database files offline.

An extensive but easy-to-understand list of commands and features, including some levels of protection and channel operation functions, makes Darkbot a very flexible but somehow complex and powerful robot, with almost human reactions and conversations.
