Introduction ============ t0xirc is a PHP class that enable your applications to interact with the popular IRC bot Eggdrop. You can use it to include a list of connected users on your web page, or even write a cli PHP script that runs in the background and give some intelligence to your idle bots. Usage is up to your imagination :) t0xirc's author is Vincent Negrier <six@aegis-corp.org> and its official homepage is http://t0xirc.si.kz Documentation ============= Object constructor ------------------ You have to instanciate a t0xirc_bot for each eggdrop you want to control. This is done with the following syntax : $mybot =& new t0xirc_bot( $bot_login , $bot_pass [, $bot_host [, $bot_port]] ); The parameters are : $bot_login : an eggdrop login you have created for the script to run as $bot_pass : the corresponding eggdrop password $bot_host : the host to connect to (the one running eggdrop), default is localhost $bot_port : the port to connect to, default is 3333 The set_* methods ----------------- If you don't want to pass the init infos to the contructor, you can also use the following methods to set the bot configuration before connecting : $mybot->set_login( $bot_login ); $mybot->set_pass( $bot_pass ); $mybot->set_host( $bot_host ); $mybot->set_port( $bot_port ); The connect method ------------------ Once you have setup the login, pass, host and port you can call the connect method to effectively connect to the bot like this : $ret = $mybot->connect(); Connect returns true if the connection succeeded, and false if not. The action methods ------------------ There is a set of very simple methods to allow your application to execute actions on the eggdrop bot. Here is the complete list without detailed documentation, I think this is self explanatory :) When $channel is optional, the default value is the default eggdrop channel. Here is the list : $mybot->set_topic( $topic ); $mybot->say( $msg [, $channel]); $mybot->msg( $nick, $msg ); $mybot->kick( $nick [, $channel]); $mybot->op( $nick [, $channel]); $mybot->deop( $nick [, $channel]); $mybot->voice( $nick [, $channel]); $mybot->devoice( $nick [, $channel]); The query properties and methods -------------------------------- t0xirc is also able to monitor a channel and its users. You can read about everything you want from the $channel array property. $mybot->channel["name"] : name of the default eggdrop chan $mybot->channel["members"] : array of connected users each channel["members"][$nickname] is itself an array with the following cells: nickname : nick of the IRC user handle : eggdrop handle (if the user is declared and authentified by eggdrop) join : time of join level : level on the bot (see eggdrop documentation) idle : time idle user : ident of the user host : host of the user op : true or false, indicates if the user is a channel operator The array is filled initially by the connect method, and can be updated whenever you want by calling the update_channel method just like this : $mybot->update_channel(); and the channel array will be regenerated. What if I want more interactivity ? ----------------------------------- If your goal is to write a background process for controlling a bot's behaviour you have to use the callback capabilities of t0xirc. This is done by using the register_callback method (and also by its foo unregister_callbacks). Another important one is the run method : once you have set up your callbacks, call it to loop (infinitely if no param given), and all your functions will be called on event reception. Here is a simple example : function public_txt_handler($nick, $msg) { if (strpos($msg, "where?")!==false) $mybot->say("$nick: DTC"); echo "$nick said '$msg'\n"; } function private_txt_handler($nick, $msg) { if ($msg=="quit") exit; } $mybot =& new t0xirc_bot("login", "pass"); $mybot->register_callback(TCB_PUBMSG, "public_txt_handler"); $mybot->register_callback(TCB_PRIVMSG, "private_txt_handler"); $mybot->connect(); $mybot->say("hello world"); $mybot->run(); If you know the concept of callbacks you shouldn't have problems understanding how the whole thing works. If you don't, ask your AOL commercial contact or try printing. Here is the list of callbacks and a short description : TCB_PUBMSG ($nick, $text) : channel text TCB_PUBACT ($nick, $text) : channel action (/me blah) TCB_PRIVMSG ($nick, $text) : private text TCB_PRIVACT ($nick, $text) : private action TCB_SELF_PUBMSG ($nick, $text) : self channel text TCB_JOIN ($nick, $host) : channel join TCB_PART ($nick, $host) : channel part TCB_KICK ($nick1, $nick2) : channel kick TCB_NICK_CHANGE ($nick1, $nick2) : nickname change TCB_QUIT ($nick, $text) : channel quit TCB_TIMER_DAY : called once a day TCB_TIMER_HOUR : called once an hour TCB_TIMER_MINUTE : called once a minute TCB_TIMER_SECOND : called once a second TCB_TIMER_LOOP : called on every main loop Another way since 1.0.3 is to use callback methods, another example : class hello_bot extends t0xirc_bot { function hello_bot($login, $pass) { parent::t0xirc_bot($login, $pass); } function on_join($nick, $host) { $this->say("Hello $nick"); } } $mybot =& new hello_bot("login", "pass"); $mybot->connect(); $mybot->run(); The name of the callback methods (usage is same as with register_callback) : on_pubmsg($nick, $text) on_pubact($nick, $text) on_privmsg($nick, $text) on_privact($nick, $text) on_selfpubmsg($nick, $text) on_join($nick, $host) on_part($nick, $host) on_kick($nick1, $nick2) on_nickch($nick1, $nick2) on_quit($nick, $text) on_timer_day() on_timer_hour() on_timer_minute() on_timer_second() on_timer_loop() Is that all ? ------------- Yep that's all.
