X-Chat Lisp Plugin

Julian Stecklina has written a plugin that allows you to script the X-Chat IRC client in Lisp.

The X-Chat ECL Plugin is a plugin to the famous X-Chat IRC Client that enables the user to write and use own plugins that are written in Common Lisp. The Common Lisp implementation of choice is ECL as it is at the time the only implementation which is suited to be “an embedded interpreter subject to the control of a larger C program” as its docs say.

The plugin lets you do anything you could do in Perl or C from Lisp.
