It's not completely an MFC question.. I didn't really know where to post it - but I'm going to use MFC in this program so...
I'd like to program something like MIRC but I don't know the "signals format" in which my client and the IRC server "talk".. where can I find more information/source code for this issue?

If you're looking for the IRC protocol, it's an open standard (RFC 1459). You can find the RFC in all the usual places, or try http://www.irc.org.au/irc_help/irchelp/rfc/rf-index.html.

There's lots and lots of documentation on IRC. Try www.irc.org, www.irchelp.org, www.irc.org.au, and your favorite search engines.

You can find the source to various different irc clients. Look in the IRC FAQ (http://www.irc.org.au/irc_help/irchelp/irc_faq.html) for details, or just try ftp://ftp.acsu.buffalo.edu/pub/irc, which should have the ircii (the current reference implementation) source code.
