I am 100% new to programming and learning Python.

I'm trying to build a bot that joins an IRC server where users are posting phone numbers.

I've done some Googling but can't find anything like this, although I'm sure it's simple to build since a human could easily be doing this with around 1 minute of instruction.

Some users are pasting them like this:

(123) 456-7890

Others are querying an IRC Bot with !phn 123 456 7890

The issue is that users are typing these in different formats.


(123) 456 7890


How do I write a bot that stays in chat, looks out for when these phone numbers get posted, and saves each one into the same text file (just adding a line each time)?

Any help would be much appreciated.

What I have tried:

Looking up IRC bots, watching videos...I don't even know where to begin.
