NAME ^

Net::AIML - Perl interface to the Pandorabots.com AIML server

VERSION ^

Version 0.0.2

SYNOPSIS ^

    #!/usr/bin/perl
    package Alice;
    use Net::AIML;
    use IO::Prompt;

    my $bot = Net::AIML->new( botid => be50f516be367d9d ); # Alice
    while (prompt "You: ") {
        print "Alice: ".$bot->tell($_)."\n";
    }  

DESCRIPTION ^

Pandorabots.com provides an XMLRPC interface to their AIML server. This module wraps that interface into an easy Perl OO interface.

INTERFACE ^

Net::AIML exports exactly two methods.

new

The only important parameter currently being c< botid > which identifies the bot you wish to use on Pandorabots.com. You can get this botid from Pandorabots.

tell

Given a line of text, tell returns the line returned by pandorabots.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

Net::AIML uses LWP internally. Any environment variables that LWP supports should be supported by Net::AIML. I hope.

DEPENDENCIES ^

HTTP::Request::Common
LWP::Simple
LWP::UserAgent
XML::Smart

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

No bugs have been reported.

Please report any bugs or feature requests to bug-net-aiml@rt.cpan.org, or through the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org.
