PCJBot is a jabber bot written in PCJ. It can do various things on a jabber multi-user chat (MUC) channel. PCJ means for POE::Component::Jabber, the bot uses this POE perl module to connect to a jabber server and a chat room.

Plugins include:
DNS lookups
Seen" nick
URL repository
Weather lookup

First, you will need a working installation of perl, POE, and PCJ. See the above websites on how to get those working. Once you have those installed you will need other perl modules for the plugins. Below is a complete list of perl modules you will need, including POE and PCJ.

What's New in This Release:
Now understands multi-word factoid lookup which doesn't end in '?'
Major overhaul. Everything is POE-ised and a lot of the jabber-specific stuff is separated and concentrated in pcjbot.pl. Eventually, there will be separate jabber and irc modules so that this bot can do IRC as well.
Added an example plugin.
