Dau.pl is an irssi script much in the fashion of Gay.pl, in that it is designed to make you look like a complete asshole on IRC. It has a number of useful features.

Proper usage of Dau.pl.


  • Destroy text in a number of different ways
  • Greet people in channels in a wonderfully annoying way (see screenshot)
  • Do some other ASCII crap
 < Dau.pl lets you cowsay without cowsay being installed. >
         \   ^__^
          \  (oo)\_______
             (__)\       )\/\
                 ||----w |
                 ||     ||


Go to http://www.dau.pl and download the script. Put it where you normally put your irssi scripts, and load it in the usual way. You will need shitty Perl. Set dau in action by executing /dau --daumode. Your text will be garbled before it is sent, and all the text you receive will be garbled as well. It's wonderful!

  • Pressing and holding enter sends a lovely flood of [email protected]'s in a number of randomly messed up formats
  • /dau --greet sends a great greet to the entire channel
  • Dau.pl can be combined with Gay.pl. For example, /gay -1 hihihihi will color the text using Gay.pl, and destroy the formatting with Dau.pl (since --daumode is on). IRC annoyances are like Voltron: Their power increases exponentially when they combine.
