NAME ^

WWW::Omegle - Perl interface www.omegle.com

SYNOPSIS ^

  use WWW::Omegle;
  my $ombot = WWW::Omegle->new(
                             on_connect    => \&connect_cb,
                             on_chat       => \&chat_cb,
                             on_disconnect => \&disconnect_cb,
                             );

  $ombot->start;
  while ($ombot->get_next_event) { 1; }
  exit;

  sub connect_cb {
    my ($om) = @_;
    print "Connected\n";
    $om->say('Hello, sir!');
  }

  sub chat_cb {
    my ($om, $what) = @_;
    print ">> $what\n";
  }

  sub disconnect_cb {
    my ($om) = @_;
    print "Disconnected.\n";
  }

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a perl interface to the backend API for www.omegle.com. This module lets you easily script chating with random, anonymous people around the world. Note that this uses an unofficial API and is subject to breakage if the site author chooses to change their interface.

EXPORT

None by default.

METHODS ^
