NAME

IM::Engine::User - a user that we're IMing

ATTRIBUTES

name

The verbatim screenname (or nickname or jid or ...) of the user.

METHODS

canonical_name

This method returns the name but with "arbitrary stuff" removed. This is more useful for storing the name in a database, or for comparing names.

While documenting this method it gave me a bad feeling, so it very well may go away. :)
