in reply to RFC: Tutorial - IRC Programming In Perl

I like your Tutorial/RFC. I wrote two bots lately, and some of my work would have been easier if I had such a comprehensive collection of links.

I haven't read all your links, but something seems to miss: there is now description of how to handle different charsets in IRC. This is something that can be a pain to handle, and the documentation mostly ignores the issue .

Net:IRC and POE::Component::IRC don't mention it, Bot::BasicBot offers to set one possible encoding, which is not always sufficient.

Also I did try to write a logging script with irssi, but I couldn't find a reference manual for If there is such a documentation it would be worthy to point to it directly, maybe I'm not the only one who is too dumb to find it.

    I have done a bit of searching, but could not find either of the things you requested. I will keep looking for more information on using different character sets and, and will post anything I find that is good quality.

    Anyhow, I did find a new link to a "Perl Scripting Reference" for irsii, and added it to the Tut.

    Thanks for the input,
      mmmmtmmmm: POE::Component::IRC's Logger plugin handles encodings the way recent mIRC (and irssi/xchat if configured right) versions do. I suggest you take a look at the source code.
