NAME
       Purple - Perl extension to the libpurple instant messenger library.

SYNOPSIS
	 use Purple;

ABSTRACT
	 This module provides the interface for using perl scripts as plugins
	 in libpurple.

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides the interface for using perl scripts as plugins in Purple. With this,
       developers can write perl scripts that can be loaded in Purple as plugins. The scripts can
       interact with IMs, chats, accounts, the buddy list, libpurple signals, and more.

       The API for the perl interface is very similar to that of the Purple C API, which can be
       viewed at http://developer.pidgin.im/doxygen/ or in the header files in the Purple source
       tree.

FUNCTIONS
       @accounts = Purple::accounts
	   Returns a list of all accounts, online or offline.
