Talk given for the BABAR-DIRC collaborationA new type of ring-imaging Cherenkov detector is being used for hadronic particle identification in the BABAR experiment at the SLAC B Factory (PEP-II). This detector is called DIRC, an acronym for Detection of Internally Reflected Cherenkov (Light). This paper describes the performance of the DIRC during the first 5 years of operation
