Hey is there any services for unrealircd around that work on windows and when each user registers on nickserv it makes a txt file or something for the user with the password in it????

I've never heard of irc services that use text files

I wouldn't recommend that

All that I've heard of use databases, whether it be a file or a RDBMS

Most services reply with the password and a sensible admin makes sure he can use getpass should they forget . I use IRCservices which work on windows just fine . Link to IRCServices

Looking at the very first topic is always a nice idea.

Moogey, most use files of some description - ircservices and anope use binary files (ie: text stored with the length of the text encoded at the start, etc), atheme uses text databases.. all sorts of stuff.

I tend to only like the idea of plaintext passwords under *very* limited conditions, and generally not at all. No SENDPASS/GETPASS, sure - but you can work in replacements like SET PASS by an admin, or things like that.

No. You could have a play with anope's SQL option though.

Yeah, DNB - but they are written to one (not-easily-parsable) database file - not to mention the disaster that could happen should Services try and update while your app was mucking about with the file.
