Top Forums Shell Programming and Scripting Using ii for irc chat - scripting assistance? Post 302591526 by spartan2006 on Thursday 19th of January 2012 06:45:24 PM

Really at this point (in reference to how ii works), I just need ways to manipulate log files.


There's an in and out file for each server / channel / person, separated by folders for each. So what I need to do is take the file

~/irc/servername/channelname/out

and monitor for the trigger word(s).


I then need to take that entire line of text and hopefully put it in a variable.


I then need to have the following sent to ~/irc/servername/in

/privmsg my_nickname [stored string of data from above]



Does that kind of clear things up a little, as far as how ii works and what I'm attempting to do?


My ultimate goal is to be able to start the file/bash script and be able to close out of the ssh session to the pogoplug while keeping this running so I can leave it idling as a bot in the room.

NAME
POE::Component::IRC::Cookbook::BasicBot - A basic IRC bot SYNOPSIS
This a very basic bot that connects to IRC, joins a few channels, and announces its arrival. DESCRIPTION
We start off quite simply: #!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; Then we "use" the stuff we're going to...well, use. "::State" is a subclass which keeps track of state information related to channels and nicknames. It is needed by the "AutoJoin" plugin which takes care of keeping us on our channels. use POE; use POE::Component::IRC::State; use POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::AutoJoin; Next up is our POE session. We create it and list our event handlers. We then start the POE kernel. POE::Session->create( package_states => [ main => [ qw(_start irc_join) ] ] ); $poe_kernel->run(); Now all we have to do is write the handlers for "_start" and "irc_join". In "_start", we create our IRC component, add an "AutoJoin" plugin, register for the "irc_join" event, and connect to the IRC server. sub _start { my $irc = POE::Component::IRC::State->spawn( Nick => 'basic_bot', Server => 'irc.freenode.net', ); $irc->plugin_add('AutoJoin', POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::AutoJoin->new( Channels => [ '#test_channel1', '#test_channel2' ] )); $irc->yield(register => 'join'); $irc->yield('connect'); } Now comes our "irc_join" event handler. We send a message to the channel once we've joined it. sub irc_join { my $nick = (split /!/, $_[ARG0])[0]; my $channel = $_[ARG1]; my $irc = $_[SENDER]->get_heap(); # only send the message if we were the one joining if ($nick eq $irc->nick_name()) { $irc->yield(privmsg => $channel, 'Hi everybody!'); } } That's it!
