DESCRIPTION

POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::CoreList is a port of Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::CoreList to the POE::Component::IRC plugin framework. It is a frontend to the excellent Module::CoreList module which will let you know what modules shipped with which versions of perl, over IRC.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

Creates a new plugin object. Takes some optional parameter:

  'command', define a command that will proceed subcommands;
  'privmsg', set to a true value to specify that the bot should reply with PRIVMSG instead of 
             NOTICE to privmsgs that it receives.

IRC USAGE

The bot replies to requests in the following form:

    <optional_command> <subcommand> [args]

Commands

The bot understand the following subcommands:

  • release

  • date

        < you> bot: release Test::More
        < bot> you: Test::More was first released with perl 5.7.3 (patchlevel perl/15039, released on 2002-03-05)

    If no command is given, release is the default.

        < you> bot: Test::More
        < bot> you: Test::More was first released with perl 5.7.3 (patchlevel perl/15039, released on 2002-03-05)
  • search

  • find

        < you> bot search Data
        < bot> Found Data::Dumper, Module::Build::ConfigData

    Perl version numbers can be passed as optional parameters to restrict the search:

        < you> bot: search Data 5.006
        < bot> Found Data::Dumper in perl 5.006

    The search never returns more than 9 replies, to avoid flooding the channel:

        < you> bot: find e
        < bot> Found AnyDBM_File, AutoLoader, B::Assembler, B::Bytecode, B::Debug, B::Deparse, B::Disassembler, B::Showlex, B::Terse, ...
