IRC bot and interactive shell that evaluates C++ snippets
Geordi is an IRC bot that compiles and (optionally) runs C++ code snippets. It is intended to be used as a demonstration tool when teaching or discussing C++ online. A ptrace(2)-based security mechanism ensures that malicious code cannot alter files nor consume excessive resources.
Geordi can also be run in 'local mode', where it is similar to the interactive environments of Ruby and Python.
A geordi bot by the name "geordi" is present on Freenode in the channels ##iso-c++, ##c++, and #geordi, although this instance is referred to as "geordi prime" to avoid confusion with the software.
