An IRCd is not just for Christmas ...

[ #31124 ]

So I finally got around to giving POE::Component::Server::IRC a production release

It has been skulking around on CPAN as a development release for a month without much complaint so I thought it was time to thrust it out into the open >;)

POE::Component::Server::IRC is a complete IRC server implementation in Perl using POE and is the result of reverse engineering Hybrid IRCd and consultation with the pertinent RFCs (where applicable).

So, why write a perl ircd? What was wrong with pircd ?

Well .... because they said I was mad and pircd was just not POE

Some things you might want to do with it:

  • Run an irc server, duh >:)
  • Run an irc network
  • Run an irc server or irc network for testing one's poco-irc bots.
  • Write an irc service
  • Write a gateway between IRC and someother chat service, such as Chatterbox or Instant Messaging

As they say, "The possibilities are endless"
