NAME

App::Pocosi - A command line tool for launching a POE::Component::Server::IRC instance

DESCRIPTION

This distribution provides a generic way to launch a POE::Component::Server::IRC instance.

  • Prints useful status information (to your terminal and/or a log file)

  • Will daemonize if you so wish

  • Supports a configuration file

  • Offers a user friendly way to pass arguments to POE::Component::Server::IRC

  • Has an interactive mode where you can issue issue commands and call methods on the IRC component(s).

The configuration file is in YAML or JSON format. It consists of a hash containing the options described in the above code example. Only config is required.

lib

Either the name of a directory containing Perl modules (e.g. plugins), or an array of such names. Kind of like Perl's -I.

pid_file

Path to a pid file, as used by most daemons. If is specified, App::Pocosi will refuse to run if the file already exists.

log_file

Path to a log file to which status messages will be written.

class

The IRC server component class. Defaults to POE::Component::Server::IRC::State.

config

This is a hash of various configuration variables for the IRCd. See PoCo-Server-IRC's configure for a list of parameters.

plugins

An array of arrays containing a short plugin class name (e.g. 'OperServ') and optionally a hash of arguments to that plugin. When figuring out the correct package name, App::Pocosi will first try to load POE::Component::Server::IRC::Plugin::YourPlugin before trying to load YourPlugin.

listeners

An array of hashes. The keys should be any of the options listed in the docs for PoCo-Server-IRC-Backend's add_listener method.

auths

An array of hashes. The keys are described in the docs for PoCo-Server-IRC's add_auth method.

operators

An array of hashes. The keys are described in the docs for PoCo-Server-IRC's add_operator method. You you can supply an array of netmasks (the kind accepted by Net::Netmask's constructor) for the 'ipmask' key.

peers

An array of hashes. The keys should be any of the options listed in the docs for PoCo-Server-IRC's add_peer method.

denials

An array of arrays. The first element of the inner array should be a netmask accepted by Net::Netmask's constructor. The second (optional) element should be a reason for the denial.

exemptions

An array of netmasks (the kind which Net::Netmask's constructor accepts).
