My experiment of writing an IRC client in shell scripts kind of failed.
The biggest issue is storage of command parameters. Arrays can't be used as this is not POSIX, $IFS doesn't work with cut and using \n as a separator failed too.
At that point I was ready to finish the TUI but this params issue was the blocker for later actions.
If anyone knows how to implement this better, please let me know
