geordi - IRC bot that compiles and runs C++ code snippets.
is an IRC bot program that compiles and (optionally) runs C++ code snippets. It is intended to be used as a demonstration tool when teaching or discussing C++ on IRC.
A Geordi bot by the name `geordi' is present on Freenode in the channels ##iso-c++, ##c++, and #geordi. It is referred to as `Geordi prime' to avoid confusion with the software. This manual was mostly written with geordi prime in mind. Other geordi instances may have altered usage syntaxes, preludes, compiler flags, rules, etc.
By default, Geordi joins the #geordi channel on the Freenode IRC network with a pseudo-random nickname chosen at package-installation time to avoid collisions. Further configuration of the software can be achieved by editing the files in the

Geordi runs in a ptrace'd, minimal chroot environment but needs root to perform the intial
syscall. You should consult Geordi's homepage (http://www.eelis.net/geordi/) or the extensive notes in the upstream tarball for more information.
