      infinity             an irc bot in haskell, v0.4

,=====================================
1. overview
`=====================================
infinity is an IRC bot inspired by #haskell's lambdabot.
it is an extensible, dynamically code-swapping irc bot inspired
by the paper 'dynamic applications from the ground up.' this means
that as infinity is running, it is simple to update the code sitting
in a directory, and reload all of the code and compile it back into
the bot itself. 

along with this, it is extensible though an easy to use plugins 
interface, and state for plugins is supported through highly-efficient 
binary serialization using bytestrings.


,=====================================
2. installation
`=====================================
please see INSTALL. there are several prerequisites to building infinity,
all of which are addressed there.


,=====================================
3. contact, bugs, latest code, etc.
`=====================================
for the latest version of infinity directly from the code repository,
you may run:

git clone git://repo.or.cz/infinity.git

after this, simply running git pull will update the repository after further
patches have been applied.

if you have any bugs to report, patches to send (via git-format-patch,)
or you wish to contact me, you may do so at the following email address:

mad dot one at gmail dot com

aside from bugs/patches, i would love to see any plugins you've written
for infinity and they can be sent the same way or simply with a regular
email message.
if possible, usage of my gpg key would be appreciated:

http://thoughtpolice.stringsandints.com/austin.pubkey.gpg

preferably after adding my key to your keyring, a message should 
be sent and encrypted with gpg utilizing the  --armor flag so 
output is ASCII (i don't really care if the message itself
is the encryped ASCII or it's in an attachment.)
if you have a gpg key you would like me to reply with, send 
me a link to it and i'll reply using it. this isn't exactly
necessary, but it enhances my chances of replying sooner as
i get plenty of dumb email.


hope you have fun and happy hacking in the new year,
