XOmBot is a simple IRC bot written in perl meant to lurk in #xomb. Right now XOmBot accepts the following commands:

  • !wiki article name: will attempt to find a wiki article of that name and provide a definition

  • !latest: will provide information for the latest commit

  • !commands: will list the commands XOmBot listens for and what they do

XOmBot has the following behaviours:

  • announces an applied commit to the main XOmB repo

  • informs the channel of the !commands command upon entering a channel

  • says “brains…” when directly refered to (ie: XOmBot: message)

  • displays the title of any valid http:// urls displayed in the channel

A note about the Net::IRC module:

There may be a warning on line 141 of IRC.pm because of the do_one_loop. Simply replace this line with the following:

return if defined($caller) and $caller eq 'Net::IRC::flush_output_queue';
