==Logging== Logging is stalled and has been for some time. Anyone who feels like making a logging bot should talk to people (especially Short Circuit) in the IRC channel. A complete listing of logs of the channel are available on request.


We have some evaluator bots for the languages on Rosetta Code. Here's how to invoke each one in the channel:

{| ! Language !! Prefix !! Bot |- | [[E]] || “eel: ” || eel |- | [[Haskell]] || “> ” || lambdabot |}
