 use strict;
 use warnings;
 use POE qw(Component::IRC Component::IRC::Plugin::NickReclaim);

 my $ircname = 'Flibble the Sailor Bot';
 my $ircserver = 'irc.blahblahblah.irc';

     package_states => [
         main => [ qw(_start) ],
     ],
 );

  $poe_kernel->run();

 sub _start {
     $irc->yield( register => 'all' );

     # Create and load our NickReclaim plugin, before we connect
     $irc->plugin_add( 'NickReclaim' =>
         POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickReclaim->new( poll => 30 ) );

     $irc->yield( connect => { } );
     return;
 }

DESCRIPTION

POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickReclaim - A POE::Component::IRC plugin automagically deals with your bot's nickname being in use and reclaims it when it becomes available again.

It registers and handles 'irc_433' events. On receiving a 433 event it will reset the nickname to the 'nick' specified with spawn or connect, appendedwith an underscore, and then poll to try and change it to the original nickname. If someone in your channel who has the nickname you're after quits or changes nickname, the plugin will try to reclaim it immediately.

METHODS

new

Takes one optional argument:

'poll', the number of seconds between nick change attempts, default is 30;

Returns a plugin object suitable for feeding to POE::Component::IRC's plugin_add method.
