This is a irssi script to automatically issue bitlbee
commands for nonsensical nicks like
u1359078110, changing them into
To do this it uses the
module. You must install it for the script to work, either from CPAN
or from your package manager. E.g.
libtext-unidecode-perl in Debian and Ubuntu.
Additionally, Bitlbee itself must be configured to use
utf-8 as its
charset. To find out if that's the case, do this in the
<@avar> set charset <@root> charset = `utf-8'
If not, just set the charset to
utf-8 like so:
<@avar> set charset utf-8 <@root> charset = `utf-8'
This script is originally from nowhere.dk modified by Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason to support Unicode names.
