There are at least two ways to do it.  One way is to make the software that
maintains the IRC channel log everything.  Another way is to write an automated
client ("bot") that stays logged into the channel pretty much all the time and
logs whatever it sees.  The former way is theoretically more reliable, in terms
of ensuring nothing is ever missing from the logs, but the latter way is
probably more convenient; the bot also can be given additional features, e.g.,
uses can send it private commands and get back answers (such as, the last n
lines in the log, for instance).

For the latter approach, one possible place to look for getting started is at
Net::IRC, here:
This is not a module I have ever used, though, so I don't know a lot about it. 
Frankly, I've not done much with IRC at all, even as a user.
