Python's "class"

The irc library works with a Python element that we have not worked with yet, called a class. Classes are program-code-templates that are extensible.

Classes provide a means of bundling data and functionality together. Creating a new class creates a new type of object, allowing new instances of that type to be made. Each class instance can have attributes attached to it for maintaining its state. Class instances can also have methods (defined by its class) for modifying its state.
