I don't use IRC much but I do love oracles. So, when we set up our own IRC server I was looking for an Oracle IRC bot but couldn't find one. Fortunately, the text-mode IRC client sirc1) has a simple plugin interface for Perl scripts. Thus, it was time for some Perl practice :-)
<andreas> Dear Oracle, do you think the oracle plugin for sirc is a valuable thing? <oracle> Dear Andreas: Naturally! I just got a phone call where I learned this. <andreas> Dear Oracle, what in fact is the meaning of life in IRC? <oracle> Dear Andreas: Ah, this one again. The answer, my dear, is 42.
