Cbupstream: an irc to chatterbox bridge

I proudly announce the little brother and complement of cbstream: cbupstream, an irc to chatterbox bridge.

Together with cbstream and cbupstream, you can communicate on the chatterbox with any irc client easily. Cbstream reads messages on the chatterbox and repeats them to an irc channel, while cbupstream listens to what you write on the channel and writes it to the chatterbox (after a simple login procedure). The toolkit is now complete.

You should find all information about cbstream and cbupstream on the cbstream and cbupstream FAQ.

Should you have any further questions or comments, you can message me or use this as a discussion thread.

(Update 2007 feb 16: change stream in the node title to bridge, thanks to jdporter for warning me.)

Update 2007 jul 2: from now on, the single bot called cbstream will serve both directions. The FAQ shall be updated later.

This means that you know have to address login and logout memos to cbstream instead of cbupstream.

Update 2008 aug 4: the login procedure has changed once again.

    I can't see my messages appear in the ChatterBox posting to #cbstream using irssi as my client. I am receiving messages from the ChatterBox just fine! Is anyone having luck with posting IRC >> Chatterbox?

      The FAQ is not accessable in the normal URL at this time (I should fix this). Try for now.

      If it doesn't help, try contacting me in the chatterbox or irc to debug your problem interactively -- I have access to cbstream log messages which can help a lot.

        Not sure why I was downmodded twice!

        These instructions certainly fix the problem:

        First, connect your irc client to the server and join the channel #cbstream.

        Then send a private message to MemoServ containing ``send cbstream login your-perlmonks-username your-perlmonks-password''. To send this private message, you have to be registered to freenode.

[stevieb]: davido thanks for the link ;) I was being the typical lazy
[davido]: date parsing is hard. The more examples you can provide of the input (within reason) and expected output, the better.
[stevieb]: agreed. That's why I said at least a half-dozen. If enough of the different formats are present, the date/time folk may not have to request more. If they do, then at least there was a decent base to start with
[stevieb]: I do date and time transformations in both Perl and Python, but not frequently enough to not have to search for the format params etc ;)
