DESCRIPTION ^

POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::FollowTail is a POE::Component::IRC plugin that uses POE::Wheel::FollowTail to follow the end of an ever-growing file. It generates irc_tail_ prefixed events for each new record that is appended to its file.

METHODS ^

new

Takes two arguments:

'filename', the name of the file to tail, mandatory;

'filter', a POE::Filter object to pass to POE::Wheel::FollowTail, optional;

Returns a plugin object suitable for feeding to POE::Component::IRC's plugin_add method.

OUTPUT EVENTS ^

The plugin generates the following additional POE::Component::IRC events:

irc_tail_input

Emitted for every complete record read. ARG0 will be the filename, ARG1 the record which was read.

irc_tail_error

Emitted whenever an error occurs. ARG0 will be the filename, ARG1 and ARG2 hold numeric and string values for $!, respectively.

irc_tail_reset

Emitted every time a file is reset. ARG0 will be the filename.
