I searched around google, for a module that would "talk" ICQ, but
with no results, so posting here is the last resort.
Do you know any module( even if it's not maintained anymore )
that deals with ICQ protocol ?

Thanks.

I don't believe there is one, no. Two quick-start approaches that come
to mind would be:
1. Porting this: http://www.zevils.com/linux/net-oscar/net-oscar.html
2. Writing a Ruby wrapper around libgaim

Paul Vaillant has a project going (Net::IM) to do this. I've implemented
Oscar/AOL in Ruby but it was never released open-source.

Is it release-able? I've had lots of dumb fun playing with Python's AIM
stuff.

It's running in production in several large-enterprises sites, so it's
of
release quality.

I might add :
1. gaim source.
2. http://iserverd.khstu.ru/oscar/

I think the right choice for me is to port Net::OSCAR, using the
references above.

Thanks.
