55     (0) NOTICE
56    
57     Please read this file carefully before trying to set up this
58     bot. Also, make SURE that you select your +n (owner) users
59     wisely! They have 100% access to your bot and account! ONLY
60     GIVE THIS POWER TO SOMEONE YOU TRUST COMPLETELY!!
61    
62     (1) WHAT IS EGGDROP?
63    
64 guppy 1.23 Eggdrop is the world's most popular Internet Relay Chat (IRC)
65     bot; it is freely distributable under the GNU General Public
66     License (GPL). Eggdrop is a feature rich program designed to be
67     easily used and expanded upon by both novice and advanced IRC
68     users on a variety of hardware and software platforms.
69    
70     An IRC bot is a program that sits on an IRC channel and preforms
71     automated tasks while looking just like a normal user on the
72     channel. Some of these functions include protecting the channel
73     from abuse, allowing privileged users to gain op or voice status,
74     logging channel events, providing information, hosting games, etc.
75    
76     One of the features that makes eggdrop stand out from other bots
77     is module and Tcl scripting support. With scripts and modules,
78     you can make the bot preform almost any task you want. They can
79     do anything from preventing floods to greeting users and banning
80     advertisers from channels.
81    
82     You can also link multiple Eggdrop bots together to form a botnet.
83     This can allow bots to op each other securely, control floods
84     efficiently, and even link channels across multiple IRC networks.
85     It also allows the Eggdrops share user lists, ban lists,
86     exempt/invite lists, and ignore lists with other bots if userfile
87     sharing is enabled. This allows users to have the same access on
88     every bot on your botnet. It also allows the bots to distribute
89     tasks such as opping and banning users. See doc/BOTNET for
90     information on setting up a botnet.
91    
92     Eggdrop is always being improved and adjusted because there are
93     bugs to be fixed and features to be added (if the users demand
94     them, and they make actually sense). In fact, it existed for
95     several years as v0.7 - v0.9 before finally going 1.0. This
96     version of Eggdrop is part of the 1.6 tree. A valiant effort
97     has been made to chase down and destroy bugs.
98    
99     This README file contains information about how to get Eggdrop,
100     how to quickly compile the bot, what you may need to do when
101     upgrading from older versions, a list of frequently asked
102     questions about compiling, how to set up a crontab, some boring
103     legal stuff, info about the mailing list (a great place to ask
104     questions, and a good place to report bugs, also), some basics
105     about CVS usage, and some channels where you might get help with
106     Eggdrop.
107 fabian 1.7
108    
109     (2) HOW TO GET EGGDROP
110    
111 guppy 1.21 Before you can compile Eggdrop, you need to have Tcl
112 guppy 1.20 installed on your system. Most systems should have Tcl on
113 fabian 1.7 them by now -- you can check by trying the command "tclsh".
114     If it works, you will be given a "%" prompt, and you can
115 guppy 1.21 type "exit" to exit the program. This means Tcl is on your
116 guppy 1.20 system. If tclsh doesn't load, then Tcl probably isn't on
117 guppy 1.21 your system, and you will need to ftp it.
118 fabian 1.7
119 guppy 1.21 The best ftp site for Tcl is ftp://ftp.scriptics.com/pub/tcl.
120 fabian 1.7
121 guppy 1.20 Tcl comes with the Slackware distribution of Linux. HOWEVER,
122 fabian 1.7 the one that comes on Slackware 3.0 is goofed up and you'll
123     have to re-install it for yourself to get it working.
124    
125 guppy 1.21 Currently, the 1.6 tree of Eggdrop is developed at
126     eggheads.org. You can get the latest version of Eggdrop from
127 guppy 1.18 ftp://ftp.eggheads.org/pub/eggdrop/source/stable/
128 fabian 1.7
129     You might try www.eggheads.org for help and information.
130    
131    
132     (2a) CVS USAGE
133    
134 guppy 1.21 You can obtain the VERY LATEST version of Eggdrop, that is still
135     under development, by using CVS. CVS means 'Concurrent Versions
136     System' and is a tool for developers to always keep source code
137     up to date. Try 'man cvs' on your shell for more information about
138     CVS ;-)
139    
140     This is intended only for users that know a good bit about Eggdrop.
141     Be aware that the versions of Eggdrop that you get via CVS are still
142     being developed, and may be buggy. The Eggheads devteam will in
143     NO WAY take any responsibility for whatever might happen to you or
144     your shell if you use a CVS version of Eggdrop.
145    
146     To obtain Eggdrop over CVS, do as follows:
147    
148     (1) Log into your shell.
149    
150     (2) Type 'export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs.eggheads.org:/usr/local/cvsroot'.
151    
152     (3) Type 'cvs login'.
153    
154     (4) Press <enter> when prompted for a password.
155    
156     (5) In your home dir, type 'cvs checkout eggdrop1.6'
157    
158     (6) in ~/eggdrop1.6, you should have a copy of the latest
159     CVS version of Eggdrop.
160 fabian 1.7
161     Notes:
162    
163 guppy 1.21 (1) You can 'cvs logout', but you don't need to.
164    
165     (2) You don't need to go through this whole process every
166     time. If you want to get a CVS version of Eggdrop at
167     a later time, you can just 'cd ~/eggdrop1.6' and type
168     'cvs update -dAP'.
169    
170     (3) If you experience errors when using 'export', you might
171     be using tclsh as a shell. If so, try using the command
172     'setenv' instead of 'export':
173    
174     'setenv CVSROOT :pserver:anonymous@cvs.eggheads.org:/usr/local/cvsroot'
175 fabian 1.7
176     (3) QUICK STARTUP
177    
178 guppy 1.21 Please see the 'INSTALL' file AFTER you finish reading this file.
179 fabian 1.7
180     (4) UPGRADING
181    
182 guppy 1.21 (4a) UPGRADING FROM A PRE-1.3 VERSION TO 1.6
183 fabian 1.7
184     #### BACK UP YOUR USERFILE ####
185    
186 guppy 1.21 We can't stress this enough. If you are upgrading and
187     you have even a slight possibility of downgrading again
188     later, you will HAVE to back up your userfile, or you will
189     lose it. v1.3 of Eggdrop radically changed a lot of things.
190    
191     There are many major changes between v0.9, v1.0, v1.1 and
192     v1.6, so PAY ATTENTION to this part if you have a v0.9, 1.0
193     or 1.1 bot currently. If you're just starting out, you can
194     skip this section.
195    
196     If you run share bots, you will need to upgrade them all at
197     the same time because of the new userfile format. Older bots
198     will be able to link in, but will not get or send a userfile.
199     MAKE A NEW CONFIG FILE from the example, there are some radical
200     changes.
201    
202     If you are upgrading from 0.9/1.0 to 1.6, just redo the whole
203     thing. Absolutely everything has changed, including the
204     userfile and config file formats.
205    
206     If you are upgrading from 1.1/1.2 to 1.6, you will likely want
207     to redo the config file, as much as changed. BACK UP!! You will
208     need to run 'tclsh scripts/weed/<userfile> c' to convert your
209     userfile from v3 (1.1/1.2) to v4 (1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6).
210    
211     (4b) UPGRADING FROM AN OLDER 1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6 VERSION TO A NEWER 1.6
212     VERSION
213    
214     If you followed the 'INSTALL' file and did a 'make install'
215     (or "make install DEST='path'") after 'make', this will be
216     pretty easy. Just upload the new eggdrop1.6.x.tar.gz file to
217     your home dir on your shell, gunzip and untar it, and type
218     'cd ~/eggdrop1.6.x'. Next, type './configure', 'make config'
219     or 'make iconfig', then 'make'. Then, kill the bot ('.die' on
220     the party line), and 'make install' to the same directory your
221     bot is currently in. After that, you can just restart your
222     bot. You may wish to delete the old Eggdrop executable and
223     modules as well, especially if you have limited disk space.
224    
225     You should read through the new eggdrop.complete.conf file
226     for all the new options in Eggdrop 1.6.x if you are upgrading
227     from 1.3.x or 1.4.x. You can copy and paste any of these
228     settings into you current conf file if you do not want to use
229     the default settings.
230 guppy 1.18
231 fabian 1.7 (5) FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (or "Why doesn't this thing work?")
232    
233     1. WHAT DO I DO IF I GET THE ERROR "USER FILE NOT FOUND"?
234    
235 guppy 1.21 (1) Run Eggdrop with the "-m" option (i.e., "eggdrop
236     -m eggdrop.conf").
237 fabian 1.7
238 guppy 1.21 (2) Go to IRC and send "hello" to your bot (i.e., "/msg mybot
239     hello").
240 fabian 1.7
241 guppy 1.21 (3) You will become an owner on your bot. You can leave the
242     bot running (nobody else will become an owner if they say
243     "hello"), but in the future, don't use the "-m" option
244     when running the bot.
245 fabian 1.7
246 guppy 1.21 2. MY EGGDROP WON'T RUN; IT JUST SAYS "CAN'T FIND YOUR
247     HOSTNAME!"
248 fabian 1.7
249 guppy 1.21 Your machine is set up strangely, and Eggdrop can't
250     figure out its network hostname. You can get around this by
251     setting the my-ip setting in the config file correctly.
252 fabian 1.7
253 guppy 1.20 3. WHAT THE HECK IS Tcl?
254 fabian 1.7
255 guppy 1.21 Tcl is a scripting language written by John Ousterhout. It's
256     much better than most "built-in" script languages (like the
257     one in ircII) and is meant to be linked with anything needing
258     a scripting language, so I linked it with Eggdrop. The file
259     "tcl-commands.doc" in the doc directory contains a list of
260     additional Tcl commands provided by Eggdrop. There are also
261     several example scripts in the scripts/ directory, and one
262     in the doc directory called first_script.txt. There are also
263     hundreds of scripts floating around on the ftp/web sites if
264     you like working by example (which is typically the best way).
265    
266     4. MY BOT DIES, AND THE LAST ENTRY IN THE LOGFILE IS "RECEIVED
267     TERMINATE SIGNAL". WHAT DOES THAT MEAN, AND CAN I PREVENT IT?
268    
269     There's nothing you can do to prevent it. It means the
270     system administrator is killing the Eggdrop process. Most
271     of the time, it's an automatic thing that happens when the
272     system is being rebooted, so it's harmless. If you have a
273     crontab running, the bot will get restarted when the system
274     is back online. Occasionally, the system administrator will
275     kill the bot manually. For example, if he/she doesn't want
276     bots running on the system.
277 fabian 1.7
278     5. MY COMPILE DIES AT THE LAST MINUTE WITH "LD FATAL SIGNAL
279 guppy 1.21 11"!
280 fabian 1.7
281 guppy 1.21 See doc/compiling.FAQ
282 fabian 1.7
283     6. SOMEONE ELSE SET UP A BOT I DON'T LIKE. ARE THERE ANY
284 guppy 1.21 BACKDOORS I CAN USE TO TAKE THEIR BOT DOWN?
285 fabian 1.7
286 guppy 1.21 No, there have never been any backdoors and there never will
287     be, so please stop asking. Every once in a while, someone
288     finds a way to exploit a bug in Eggdrop, but we fix these
289     bugs as soon as we find out about them. If you want to bring
290     down someone else's bot, you will not have my/our help.
291 fabian 1.7
292     7. WHAT ARE MODULES?
293    
294 guppy 1.21 Modules are a way of adding extra C code from the bot, much
295     like Tcl scripts, without requiring the bot to be recompiled.
296     See doc/MODULES for more information.
297 fabian 1.7
298     8. CAN I COMPILE EGGDROP WITHOUT DYNAMIC MODULES?
299    
300 guppy 1.21 Yes, you can. If ./configure detects that your system CAN'T
301     run modules, it will setup 'make' to link the modules in
302     statically for you. You can also choose this option yourself
303     by typing 'make static'. You can also try to compile dynamic
304     modules on a static-only system by using 'make eggdrop'.
305    
306 guppy 1.23 8.1 DO I STILL NEED TO 'loadmodule' MODULES ???
307 guppy 1.21
308     YES, when you compile statically, all the modules are linked
309     into the main executable. HOWEVER, they are not enabled until
310     you use loadmodule to enable them, hence you get nearly the
311     same functionality with static modules as with dynamic modules.
312 fabian 1.7
313 guppy 1.19 9. WHERE CAN I GET A PRE-COMPILED EGGDROP FOR MY COMPUTER?
314 fabian 1.7
315 guppy 1.21 It is HIGHLY recommended AGAINST using pre-compiled Eggdrops
316     from un-trusted sources. Eggdrop has been a regular target
317     for hacking and crashing. Distribution of pre-compiled
318     (binary) versions of Eggdrop are the easiest way for hackers
319     to provide you with the easiest (and most dangerous) way of
320     gaining access to, not only your bot, but to your computer
321     account directly. Don't advertise your pre-compiled Eggdrop
322     binary sites on the Eggdrop list either. =P
323 fabian 1.7
324     10. I GET 'Makefile:3 :invalid operator' OR SOME-SUCH-THING
325     WHEN I TRY TO 'make'
326    
327 guppy 1.21 Try 'gmake'.
328 fabian 1.7
329     11. WHEN I 'tclsh scripts/weed <userfile> c' IT BARFS CHUNKS
330     AT ME AND DIES :(
331    
332 guppy 1.23 UPGRADE YOUR TCL. You are probably using Tcl 7.5 or earlier.
333 guppy 1.21 Some of the commands in weed require Tcl7.6 to run, so either
334     upgrade it or remove the offending lines from you userfile
335     manually (those starting with '.' generally) and accept the
336     loss of that data.
337    
338     12. I get "ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libtcl80.so.1" not found"
339     or "eggdrop: error in loading shared libraries libtcl8.1.so: \
340     cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" when I
341     try to start my bot.
342    
343     './configure' is looking in the wrong place for Tcl; it looks
344     like it compiled with one version of Tcl and tries to load
345     another. Maybe your sysadmin upgraded Tcl and didn't tell
346     you. In that case, you should just need to recompile your
347     bot.
348    
349     Maybe, when upgrading, he didn't clean the old version of
350     Tcl and './configure' is looking for the files in the wrong
351     places, or trying to use different versions of tcl.h and
352     libtcl*. Smack your admin and have him install Tcl properly ;)
353    
354     You can also try:
355 fabian 1.7
356 guppy 1.21 ./configure --with-tcllib=<path-to-tcl-lib>
357 fabian 1.7 --with-tclinc=<path-to-tcl-inc>
358    
359 guppy 1.21 Tell configure where to look for the Tcl files.
360    
361     Try looking for libtcl by:
362 segfault 1.1
363 fabian 1.7 ls /usr/lib/libtcl*
364     ls /usr/local/lib/libtcl*
365 segfault 1.1
366 guppy 1.21 Try looking for tcl.h by:
367 segfault 1.1
368 fabian 1.7 ls /usr/include/tcl.h
369     ls /usr/local/include/tcl.h
370 segfault 1.1
371 guppy 1.21 If everything else fails, try to install Tcl to your home dir
372     ;) (Suggested by dw@Undernet, dw@lixom.nu)
373    
374 guppy 1.23 13. I GET A WHOLE PILE OF "Unresolved symbol 'Tcl_AppendResult'"
375     (OR SOME OTHER SYMBOL) WHEN I TRY TO LOAD A MODULES.
376 fabian 1.7
377 guppy 1.21 POSSIBILITY A: See section 12.
378 fabian 1.7
379     POSSIBILITY B:
380    
381 guppy 1.21 Some of the standard libraries have been compiled for static
382     linking only on your machine, you have 3 options:
383    
384     (1) If it's your own machine, recompile Tcl using dynamic
385     linking by using './configure --enable-shared' when you
386     configure Tcl (not the bot) and then remake, and reinstall.
387    
388     (2) If it's not your machine, you make have to resort to 'make
389     static' and 'make install DEST="path"' to make and install
390     your bot.
391    
392     (3) If you are of a more aggressive sense of mind, go beat
393     the stuffing out of your admin for having lame static
394     libraries :)
395 fabian 1.7
396     (6) SETTING UP A CRONTAB
397    
398 guppy 1.21 Eggdrop has become more stable with time, thanks mostly to people
399     reporting bug details and helping find places where it crashes.
400     However, there are still a -few- places where things aren't
401 guppy 1.23 perfect. Few, if any, things in life are.
402 guppy 1.21
403     Also, most systems go down from time to time. These things cause
404     your bot to disappear from IRC, and you have to restart it.
405    
406     Eggdrop comes with a shell script called 'botchk' that
407     will help keep the bot online. It will make the machine check every
408     ten minutes to make sure your bot is still running. To use it, you
409     have to add a line to your crontab. First, edit 'botchk' and change
410     the directory and command line parameters so that it will be able
411     to start up your bot. Then, add this line to your crontab:
412    
413     0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /home/mydir/botchk
414    
415     If you don't want to get emails from cron, use this:
416    
417     0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /home/mydir/botchk >/dev/null 2>&1
418    
419     Naturally, you need to change the path to the correct path for
420     botchk. If you've never used crontab before, here is a simple way
421     to add that line:
422    
423     (1) Create a new file called 'mycron' and put the above
424     line into it.
425    
426     (2) From your shell prompt, type '% crontab mycron'.
427    
428     That will create a new crontab entry for you with a line that
429     runs botchk every ten minutes. Botchk will then restart the bot when
430     necessary (and send you email informing you).

432     (6a) SETTING UP A CRONTAB USING AUTOBOTCHK
433    
434 guppy 1.21 Included with your Eggdrop is an Eggdrop utility called
435     'autobotchk'. Using autobotchk is probably the fastest way of
436     creating your botchk and crontabbing it with just a few required
437     steps.
438    
439     To crontab your bot, follow these steps:
440 fabian 1.7
441 guppy 1.21 (1) Type 'cp scripts/autobotchk ..'.
442 fabian 1.7
443 guppy 1.21 (2) Type './autobotchk <Eggdrop config file>'.
444 fabian 1.7
445     This will hopefully crontab your bot using the default
446     setup. If you want a list of autobotchk options, type
447     './autobotchk'. An example with options would be:
448    
449 guppy 1.21 ./autobotchk <Eggdrop config file> -noemail -5
450 fabian 1.7
451     This would setup crontab to run the botchk every 5 minutes
452     and also to not send you e-mail saying that it restarted
453     your bot.
454    
455     (7) BORING LEGAL STUFF
456    
457 guppy 1.21 The Eggdrop bot is copyright (C) by Robey Pointer. As of January,
458     1997, Eggdrop is distributed according to the GNU General Public
459     License. There should be a copy of this license in the file
460     'COPYING'. If not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc.,
461     675 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA.
462    
463     As of eggdrop1.3.28, all changes made by the Eggheads development
464     team to the Eggdrop source code and any related files are copyright
465     (C) by Eggheads. The source code will still be distributed according
466     to the GNU General Public License as Robey Pointer did in the past.
467    
468     Releases previous to 1.0m were made using a different licensing
469     scheme. You may, at your option, use the GNU General Public License
470     on those versions (instead of the license packaged with them) with
471     my blessing. For any versions bearing a copyright date of 1997 or
472     later, you have no choice -- you must use the GNU General Public
473     License.
474    
475     The files "match.c", "net.c", and "blowfish.c" are exempt from
476     the above restrictions. "match.c" is original code by Chris Fuller
477     (email: crf@cfox.bchs.uh.edu) and has been placed by him into the
478     public domain. "net.c" is by me and I [who?] also choose to place
479     it in the public domain. "blowfish.c" is by various sources and is
480     in the public domain as well. All 3 files contain useful functions
481     that could easily be ported to other applications.
482    
483     Tcl is by John Ousterhout and is in no way affiliated with Eggdrop.
484     It likely has its own set of copyrights and whatnots.
485 fabian 1.7
486 guppy 1.21 There is no warranty, implied or whatever. You use this software
487     at your own risk, no matter what purpose you put it to.

489     (8) MAILING LIST
490    
491 guppy 1.21 There are currently a couple of mailing lists about Eggdrop.
492 guppy 1.16 eggheads@eggheads.org is the one relevant for posts about
493 guppy 1.21 Eggdrop 1.4 and up (suggestions, help, etc).
494 fabian 1.7

501     ### DO NOT SEND ROBEY EMAIL ABOUT EGGDROP ###
502    
503 guppy 1.21 Robey is no longer developing the Eggdrop code, so don't bother
504     e-mailing him. If you have a serious problem, email the eggheads
505     mailing list and it will get to the coders.
506    
507     Please, before posting to this list, see what things are like.
508     When you do post, read over your post for readability, spelling, and
509     grammar mistakes. Obviously, we're all human (or are we?) and we
510     all make mistakes (heck, look at this document! ;).
511    
512     Open discussion and debate is integral to change and progress.
513     Don't flame others over mere form (grammar and spelling), or
514     even substantive issues for that matter. Please read and follow
515     the mailing list rules.
516    
517     The eggheads@eggheads.org mailing list is not dedicated to those
518     all too common questions we have all seen on other lists... For
519     example:
520 fabian 1.7
521     "Why does my bot say this: Please edit your config file."
522     "How do I telnet my bot?"
523 guppy 1.21 "Where do I get Eggdrop for windows??????"
524 fabian 1.7 etc..
525    
526 guppy 1.21 Technical questions, your thoughts or suggestions on new features
527     being added to Eggdrop, things that should be removed or fixed,
528     amazing problems that even stump the guru's, etc. are what we want
529     to see here.
530 guppy 1.18
531 guppy 1.21 Bug reports should be sent to bugs@eggheads.org. Please read
532 guppy 1.18 and fill out the BUG-REPORT file in the doc directory.
533 fabian 1.7
534 guppy 1.21 DO NOT SEND HTML E-MAILS TO ANY OF THE EGGHEADS.ORG MAILING LISTS.
535     ANYONE CAUGHT SENDING HTML E-MAILS TO ONE OF THESE LISTS WILL BE
536     REMOVED IMMEDIATELY!
537    
538 fabian 1.7 (9) DOCUMENTATION
539    
540 guppy 1.21 We're trying to keep the documentation up to date. If you feel
541     that anything is missing here or that anything should be added,
542     etc, please email eggheads@eggheads.org about it. Thank you.
543 fabian 1.7
