NAME

Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable::Module::Eliza - Eliza for Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable

VERSION

Version 0.02

SYNOPSIS

This module is a simple wrapper around http://search.cpan.org/dist/Chatbot-Eliza.

    $bot->load('Eliza');

FUNCTIONS

help

Prints a helpful message.

fallback

Replies to messages directed to the bot instance. We are using fallback just to make sure that this very talkative module does not interfere with any other module.

init

Initializes the eliza module. Please refer to the documentation section VARIABLES for configuration settings.

set / unset

These functions are subclassed to reload the eliza instance after the scriptfile is changed. The normal beaviour of Chatbot::Eliza is to simply add the rules of the new scriptfile to the current scriptfile rules, which is often not the expected behaviour (at least by the expectations of the author). In case scriptfile is unset, we reload the eliza instance to access it's default Rogerian psychotherapist.

Both functions reset the phrases remembered by the %reasmblist_for_memory structure.

VARIABLES

scriptfile

The chatbot uses the tranformation rules in this file to reply. Please refer to http://search.cpan.org/dist/Chatbot-Eliza for its syntax.
