This FonBot plugin reads a configuration file (hardcoded to /etc/fonbot/ and provides configuration variables to the other plugins. It is a required plugin, since all other plugins depend on it.

The configuration variables are described in detail in the plugins that use it.



(Re-)reads the configuration file, populating the configuration variables. The configuration file is a regular perl script, hardcoded to /etc/fonbot/


Currently a no-op. It is recommended to call this after finishing using this module, since it might do something in a future release.
