= Name
Jabber::Simple - An extremely easy-to-use Jabber client library.
= Synopsis
# Send a message to a friend, asking for authorization if necessary:
im ="", "password")
im.deliver("", "Hey there friend!")
# Get received messages and print them out to the console:
im.received_messages { |msg| puts msg.body if msg.type == :chat }
# Send an authorization request to a user:
# Get presence updates from your friends, and print them out to the console:
# (admittedly, this one needs some work)
im.presence_updates { |update|
from = update[0].jid.strip.to_s
status = update[2].status
presence = update[2].show
puts "#{from} went #{presence}: #{status}"

# See the Jabber::Simple documentation for more information.
= Description
Jabber::Simple is intended to make Jabber client programming dead simple. XMPP,
the Jabber protocol, is extremely powerful but also carries a steep learning
curve. This library exposes only the most common tasks, and does so in a way
that is familiar to users of traditional instant messenger clients.
= Known Issues
* None. If you'd like additional functionality, please contact the developer!
