http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/571 shows the how to. I have installed shebang.el. This entry here is to help me find it easier when I’m actually looking for it.
Interestingly, the same post explains how to achieve this with Vi as well. So, I’d better keep a reference to that post here.
Here is VimIRC. As the link says, it is an IRC client that runs under Vim. Now, I never use Vim or any other Vi for that reason. So, this is a reminder of sorts for me.. when I might get forced to use Vi[m], I’ll use this to log on to IRC. I learn that #vi is the Vim channel on freenode.net.
However, Debian doesn’t seem to ship this program.
