How to make a IRC bot
« on: February 05, 2015, 08:04:31 pm »
I want to make a bot that does everything that worm in #knightos on freenode does plus other cool things like greeting me, Excedra.

Can anyone please help me?

I'm not familiar with the functions worm has. However, there are a lot of different ways to write an IRC bot. I recommend you look at a dedicated tutorial in the language of your choice. Here's one in python and another in Haskell.

The problem with Roll Your Own IRC Bot on the Haskell wiki is that it hasn't been updated in a while and uses some old libraries (with exceptions mostly) IIRC.

Here's the one I use, with a few scripts I wrote. It's in Javascript (with Node.js), if you read the API it shouldn't be really complicated.

Otherwise, you can try Eggdrop or this old thing I wrote 5 years ago.

You might want to lead off with what language you want to work with at the start of the topic next time.

C is a pretty terrible choice for an IRC bot, because manual string buffering and all that, and it's not a program that's performance-critical. you should really try using something else for this use case

Some high level scripting language, like python, for example.

I think Python costs money. Is Java okay? I'll need to learn Java if I want to learn Web Programming.

Python is free. Did you look it up? According to everywhere on the internet, Python is very free. According to me, Python is easy to use, easy to program, and is the best for projects like IRC bots.

I want to do it with Java because I'll need to learn it eventually for Web Programming. How do I program a IRC Bot in Java?

Java is not used on the web anymore. Maybe you're thinking of Javascript, which is commonly used on webpages. Javascript is not very well suited to programming bots in, though.
