This program lets you talk on Showdown servers (currently only supports Showdown main) using an IRC client.
It's quite unfinished, but if you are interested in using this program, first set up Go prefix, and then use the following command to download the package.
go get github.com/xfix/showdown2irc
Then you can use
showdown2irc command in terminal to start a server.
Once started, to use a server, connect using IRC client to

username, and server password to your Showdown account password.
Once connected, you can join a room by using
/join command, with room
name starting with
