Bug#105641: ITP: libpoe-component-irc-perl -- a fully event-driven IRC client module.
Version: N/A; reported 2001-07-18
Maintainer: Steve Kowalik <email@example.com>
Depends: perl (>= 5.6.0-16), libpoe-perl0
Description: a fully event-driven IRC client module.
POE::Component::IRC is a POE component (who'd have guessed?) which
acts as an easily controllable IRC client for your other POE
components and sessions. You create an IRC component and tell it what
events your session cares about and where to connect to, and it sends
back interesting IRC events when they happen. You make the client do
things by sending it events. That's all there is to it. Cool, no?
[Note that using this module requires some familiarity with the
details of the IRC protocol. I'd advise you to read up on the gory
details of RFC 1459
<http://cs-pub.bu.edu/pub/irc/support/rfc1459.txt> before you
get started. Keep the list of server numeric codes handy while you
program. Needless to say, you'll also need a good working knowledge of
POE, or this document will be of very little use to you.]
