Net::IRC::DCC - Object-oriented interface to a single DCC connection


Hard hat area: This section under construction.


This documentation is a subset of the main Net::IRC documentation. If you haven't already, please "perldoc Net::IRC" before continuing.

Net::IRC::DCC defines a few subclasses that handle DCC CHAT, GET, and SEND requests for inter-client communication. DCC objects are created by Connection->new_{chat,get,send}() in much the same way that IRC->newconn() creates a new connection object.


This section is under construction, but hopefully will be finally written up by the next release. Please see the irctest script and the source for details about this module.


Conceived and initially developed by Greg Bacon <> and Dennis Taylor <>.

Ideas and large amounts of code donated by Nat "King" Torkington <>.

Currently being hacked on, hacked up, and worked over by the members of the Net::IRC developers mailing list. For details, see .
