kelscat18 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I will admit i am a complete newb when it comes to ssl topics let alone being a perl novice! but I'm in need of writing a small basic irc bot that will connect to a server that only allows ssl connections, all the bot needs to do is call a subroutine that will send a message to the channel every couple seconds. I've looked at Net::IRC and other libs that support ssl but it's all way over my head.. writing a bot without ssl support using sockets is no problem.
I'm using windows 7 if that helps. Sorry If i'm asking to much of you, been ripping my hair out all day over this! :/
