IM::Engine::User - a user that we're IMing
The verbatim screenname (or nickname or jid or ...) of the user.
This method returns the name but with "arbitrary stuff" removed. This is more useful for storing the name in a database, or for comparing names.
While documenting this method it gave me a bad feeling, so it very well may go away. :)
To install IM::Engine, copy and paste the appropriate command in to your terminal.
perl -MCPAN -e shell
