NAME ^

POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::Proxy - A PoCo-IRC plugin that provides a lightweight IRC proxy/bouncer

SYNOPSIS ^

 use strict;
 use warnings;
 use POE qw(Component::IRC::State Component::IRC::Plugin::Proxy Component::IRC::Plugin::Connector);

 my $irc = POE::Component::IRC::State->spawn();

 POE::Session->create(
     package_states => [
         main => [ qw(_start) ],
     ],
     heap => { irc => $irc },
 );

 $poe_kernel->run();

 sub _start {
     my ($kernel, $heap) = @_[KERNEL, HEAP];
     $heap->{irc}->yield( register => 'all' );
     $heap->{proxy} = POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::Proxy->new( bindport => 6969, password => "m00m00" );
     $heap->{irc}->plugin_add( 'Connector' => POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::Connector->new() );
     $heap->{irc}->plugin_add( 'Proxy' => $heap->{proxy} );
     $heap->{irc}->yield ( connect => { Nick => 'testbot', Server => 'someserver.com' } );
     return;
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::Proxy is a POE::Component::IRC plugin that provides lightweight IRC proxy/bouncer server to your POE::Component::IRC bots. It enables multiple IRC clients to be hidden behind a single IRC client-server connection.

Spawn a POE::Component::IRC::State session and add in a POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::Proxy plugin object, specifying a bindport and a password the connecting IRC clients have to use. When the component is connected to an IRC network a listening port is opened by the plugin for multiple IRC clients to connect.

Neat, huh? >;o)

This plugin will activate POE::Component::IRC's raw events (irc_raw) by calling $irc->raw_events(1).

This plugin requires the IRC component to be POE::Component::IRC::State or a subclass thereof.

METHODS ^

new

Takes a number of arguments:

'password', the password to require from connecting clients;

'bindaddress', a local address to bind the listener to, default is 'localhost';

'bindport', what port to bind to, default is 0, ie. randomly allocated by OS;

Returns an object suitable for passing to POE::Component::IRC's plugin_add method.

getsockname

Takes no arguments. Accesses the listeners getsockname method. See POE::Wheel::SocketFactory for details of the return value;

list_wheels

Takes no arguments. Returns a list of wheel ids of the current connected clients.

wheel_info

Takes one parameter, a wheel ID to query. Returns undef if an invalid wheel id is passed. In a scalar context returns the time that the client connected in unix time. In a list context returns a list consisting of the peer address, port, tthe connect time and the lag in seconds for that connection.

OUTPUT EVENTS ^

The plugin emits the following POE::Component::IRC events:

irc_proxy_up

Emitted when the listener is successfully started. ARG0 is the result of the listener getsockname.

irc_proxy_connect

Emitted when a client connects to the listener. ARG0 is the wheel ID of the client.

irc_proxy_rw_fail

Emitted when the POE::Wheel::ReadWrite fails on a connection. ARG0 is the wheel ID of the client.

irc_proxy_authed

Emitted when a connecting client successfully negotiates an IRC session with the plugin. ARG0 is the wheel ID of the client.

irc_proxy_close

Emitted when a connected client disconnects. ARG0 is the wheel ID of the client.

irc_proxy_down

Emitted when the listener is successfully shutdown. ARG0 is the result of the listener getsockname.

QUIRKS ^

Connecting IRC clients will not be able to change nickname. This is a feature.
