hello, i wanted to make a bot for our channel on IRC . At first i thought that Perl would be quite useful and is the most preferred language specially for this purpose but why learn new semantics when Java is at rescue? Yes, there is this pirbot module in java which has all the functionalities to help you build it.
Thanks Java :)
P.S: It's always better btw if you learn more languages. I was in a hurry though.
