Eggdrop is the world's most popular open source Internet Relay Chat (IRC) bot. Originally created by Robey Pointer in December 1993 for use on a channel called #gayteen, it has spawned an almost cult like following of users.
It is a feature rich program designed to be easily used and expanded upon (using Tcl scripting) by both novice and advanced IRC users on a variety of hardware and software platforms.

Eggdrop is freely available for anyone to copy, distribute and/or modify under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).

You can find the latest version of Eggdrop in our Downloads section.
