IRC Reporter

By Stephen Dunn | December 18, 2012 | Development

Recently I was asked to make a bot for a local user group. The bot would simply report new events into the topic of an IRC channel. After the bot was created I decided to write an article about it and publish the code. The code and article  can be found here: http://www.dsmwebgeeks.com/2012/09/creating-an-irc-bot-stephen-dunn/

Basically the bot will constantly check the sites rss feed and then see if there are any valid changes for the topic.  If a valid change is found then it will quickly update the topic. I used the TCL scripting language since it is allowed by an eggdrop bot. I hope that you read it and find it useful.
