Eiwic is released under the GPL, for more info please read the file COPYING.
Quick compilation guide
- Ungzip & untar the eiwic-1.1.x.tar.gz file
- Run: ./configure
- Run: make (use gmake on *BSD)
- Edit 'sample.conf' to fit your needs and save it as 'bot.conf'
- Optional: Run "./eiwic bot.conf -l - -v 10" to probe if the bot is
running correctly with your bot.conf. If it doesn't give you errors
or warnings and joins the channels you set, your configuration is
alright and you can kill the bot again through SIGINT (Ctrl-C).
- To run the bot in the background finally, you may launch it with
"./eiwic bot.conf -d" or, additionally, with "-l eiwic.log -v X" if
you want a logfile (X is the verbosity level, set it to 10 for a
verbose debug logfile, or to 2 for a normal (smaller) logfile.
Send bugs to with a description and, if necessary, the part
of the logfile.
Thanks go out to alpha_5 for running Eiwic on his server so many bugs have been
found, to Youk for making it run on OpenBSD and to Elaminato for testing Eiwic
with Cygwin :)

1.1.0 - oct 15th 2004
* added output routing:
every trigger, ep_main, ep_help function doesn't have to
send its output now directly to the server. it just sends
its output to an OUTPUT object, which will then be routed
to a channel, and then to the server, for example
* changed module API because of the output routing
* in the msvc/ directory is now a MSVC studio workspace (not
for compiling, just editing)
* thrown out some modules... fixed all other modules to match the
new module API
* introduced ep_help callback for the modules
* changed !help trigger from the info module. it can now be used
to read what the ep_help trigger returns from every module.
* triggers can now be used in private /msgs to the bot
* triggers can now be tested with the -t cmdline parameter
