I did, because I was bored in school and there was MVC++ installed so I decided to make one.

It really sucked.

try google, the first few links seem to be usefull

if you're looking for an excersice in learning irc numerics, or just seeing if you can do it, you might look at perl with the POE::Component::IRC module. it's very easy to program with (though would not be as "fast/efficient" as a nicely written c/c++ client)

Okay, just to clear things up... this is taken from versions.txt from mirc...
30.Uninstaller will now work even if you have other copies of mIRC
31.Now using Visual C++ .NET 7.0 to compile mIRC.
32.Fixed memory bug relating to registry handling.
Note: mIRC is not open source... so here's my tip forst learning about irc clients, its simply, just learn how to make a socket bot in mirc, thats how I first learned... Try php, perl, then look at java, and finally C/C++

There's lots of different clients in many different languages i'm sure its not that hard to find an open source one to look at...
