geordi - IRC bot that compiles and runs C++ code snippets.
Geordi 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 /etc/geordi directory.
SECURITY / CHROOT
Geordi runs in a ptrace’d, minimal chroot environment but needs root to
perform the intial chroot(2) syscall. You should consult Geordi’s
homepage (http://www.eelis.net/geordi/) or the extensive notes in the
upstream tarball for more information.
The chroot can be generated using the geordi-refresh-chroot(8) command.
geordi accepts the following options:
