Although AltBot seems to be awesome and perfect, it is a very new project and has a long ways to go. There are a lot of improvements that would make AltBot quite excellent. Look for them coming soon.
AltBot is very simple and it will stay that way for some time. It uses mysql database (as a simple irc log) to search for relevant data. It searches only on one keyword. It finds a keyword by removing the common English grammar, then picking at random. Also, on the sql select, it does order by rand() to make the output more random. A new module adds regex-based censorship to AltBot. Currently, on the live server, the only phrase that AltBot is censored from saying is "New Post :: ", which he was saying far too often. cpmhat says that line every time a post is made on neg9.org. If you, like I, have been awaiting the shutup command for altbot, wait no longer. See below.
# connect to efnet and join #altsci or #neg9. perl linhat_ai1_irc.pl irc.vel.net # Command-line interface to linhat. # One command per execute. perl linhat_ai1.pl # Usage: linhat_ai1.pl [-u user] [-c | -s] [-f] [-h] # -u user Specify the user. # -c Use PFM/china2.pm to get data. # -s Use STDIN to get data [default]. # -f Do not input data, only search. # -h Display this Usage information. # get some random words from dict. perl china2.pl # Remove unuseful words/punctuation from a sentence. perl remove_grammar1.plIn irc
altbot: hello altbot, what's up? altbot fears censorship. # to mute altbot for 50 events, # simply say any of the following: altbot: shutup altbot shut up altbot, you'd do well to shut upMore detailed information coming soon.
