Introduction

SimBot is Perl IRC bot implemented via the Perl Object Environment and POE::Component::IRC. It is primarily intended as an entertainment bot and does not presently do any form of channel management. It is likely that some channel management features will become available in the future via plugins.

SimBot is currently in a pre-release Alpha state. It is not yet feature complete and no downloadable packages have been released. However, sources are available in CVS for anyone interested in testing the bot. We feel that the current state of the code shouldn't cause you any serious problems and should be usable on a production system, however if SimBot decides to start randomly taking over your channel and stealing your lunch money, don't say we didn't warn you.

If you would like to meet or play with SimBot, drop by our IRC channel! We're located in #SimBot on Freenode (irc.freenode.net). Try the Java client below if you don't otherwise have access to IRC.

Development News

July 4th, 2004 - Welcome to the SimBot Web Site

Welcome to our new web site. This site will eventually begin to allow potential users of SimBot to follow our development toward an eventual release. We've been working for months without any official web site, but I decided it was finally time to put up some pages and gather some interest in what we're doing.
