The Eggdrop Jabber Bot bridges your Eggdrop IRCbot to the Jabber instant messaging network and thus to ICQ.
Version: 0.3The Eggdrop Jabber Bot bridges your Eggdrop IRC bot to the Jabber instant messaging network and thus to ICQ (via ICQ transports on the Jabber server). This code is meant to be a demo that it can be done and be useful and to basic start point which you can extent to your needs. The only functionality delivered with this package is right now an invite feature.
Operating System: Linux
Let's assume you are a computer science student and have some great news about new gadgets and you want to tell your friends. They are currently not logged in to the IRC server. Write everybuddy a message to come into the IRC channel? Or even worse tell everybody separately about [your favorite new gadget here]? Of course not! So you just tell the bot "!jabot:invite Come and here about THE new gadget" and the bot will message all the users that have set their IM details an invitation with your message... And they can even answer your reply. They can send one message that will be posted to the channel. For more they will have to get to the channel though.
The Eggdrop Jabber Bot code is built on older versions of TCL JabberLib and TclXML. The needed versions are included with the package. I have patched them with some additional functionality to fit my needs so porting to the new versions would take some time. Anybody interested?
