e-Bot is an IRC bot written in Perl. It's main functioning is based on the Socket.pm Perl module, which makes possible its use on most servers that support Perl.
This software will require Perl 5.
You should be able to start up just by running infobot. If you are using macperl, you will
(currently) have to make one minor change (because $^O didn't work for me under os8).
The infobot uses parameter files, typically in the params directory, to set up with. It treats anything on the command line as a parameter file and tries to load it.
If you are using macperl, you will want to set the value of the macperl parameter to 1 in the
two given param files (in the 'files' dir).
By default, the infobot uses the IRC setup. This may change. NOTE that the irc version has no output by default; you'll have to turn up the debug level to get more.
to start up the infobot, just invoke it from the command line.
