      7 All the user interface go through the filesystem.  While it is a bit raw to be
      8 used as is, it is a very good personnal IRC logging tool that use no memory
      9 (the buffers are not held back in memory), and building block to build a
     10 full-fleged client ontop of it.

     12 *eel* is a C program that formats the logs coming out from ii.  sed and awk can
