Not to engage in hyperbole, but this is the oldest and most legendary script in the ircII heritage. It's usage is functionally universal.
Normally when a netsplit occurs, your server sends you quit messages for everyone on the other side of the split. Then when the netsplit is fixed, you get join messages for everybody again.
This can cause a lot of scrolling. This script eases the burden by tracking all netsplits and outputting one message per netsplit, and one message per netjoin.
The facility of this script is included, somehow, in every script pack ever distributed in ircII-dom.
This script first appeared in ircII.
