This document specifies two URL (Uniform Resource Locator) schemes, using the URI (Uniform Resource Indicator) names 'irc' and 'ircs', for the location of IRC (Internet Relay Chat) servers. These URLs allow for easy location of an IRC server, optionally also specifying an IRC channel to join, or a person's nickname to contact upon connection.
