NAMEblootbot - the slowest and most bloated IRC bot on the internet
DESCRIPTIONblootbot is a feature-ridden IRC bot originally based on infobot, the primary task of which is to store information in the form of factoids. A factoid is a short snippet of information, indexed by a key name. From wordnet: factoid(n): something resembling a fact; unverified (often invented) information that is given credibility because it appeared in print The configuration files for blootbot control it's global behaviour, but most administration is done online, via it's DCC and chat management interfaces. For example: <asuffield> apt, factoid is a trivial piece of information <apt> ok, asuffield The factoid keyed with name "factoid" now has value "a trivial piece of information". This can be extracted with forms such as: <asuffield> apt, factoid? <apt> methinks factoid is a trivial piece of information <asuffield> apt, tell root about factoid (apt sends a /msg to "root" telling him/her/it the value of "factoid")
OPTIONSconfig-path is the path to where the files blootbot.conf and directories can be found, which set basic blootbot behaviour and locate the relevant files inside the FHS, respectively.
SEE ALSOOnline help is accessed by saying "help" to the bot when it is running. Brief setup instructions can be found in /usr/share/doc/blootbot/README.Debian. There is no other documentation, sorry.
