WWW::Chat - support module for web chat script.


  # none ... 
  # this module is not intended to be used 
  # except by processed webchat scripts.


The webchatpp program is a preprocessor that turns chat scripts into plain perl scripts. When this script is fed to perl it will perform the chatting. The webchat language consist of perl code with some lines interpreted and expanded by WWW::Chat::Processor.

The interpreted scripts call functions in this module.

See webchatpp for more details.


The initial value of the $TRACE variable is initialized from the WEBCHAT_TRACE environment variable.

Proxy settings are picked up from the environment too. See "env_proxy" in LWP::UserAgent.
