Ofnibot seeks to reimplement a subset of the functionality provided by the popular Infobot IRC information bot. It learns from chat conversations and answers questions from users based on its knowledge. Ofnibot is written in Perl and uses the POE IRC modules for IRC communication. Its database files are compatible with Infobot database files and Ofnibot supports a large subset of Infobot commands. On the other hand, Ofnibot was programmed from the ground up to be small and compact. Consequently, it does not include most of the "extras" provided by other IRC information bots.
This project is a module for Anope IRC Services that allows operators to create AOE (Akill On Entry) channels. These channels are emptied of users, and any subsequent joins receive an Akill (or one of a number of other configurable actions). The purpose of this module is to allow operators to have control over channels being used by spambot nets.
Bicq is an attempt to bring connection to ICQ services to the popular BitchX IRC client. It uses BitchX's built-in plugin system to allow users to connect to and chat on the ICQ system as well as the IRC networks. It runs entirely inside the BitchX application, and uses that application's standard interface with its provided commands.
