55     (0) NOTICE
56    
57     Please read this file carefully before trying to set up Eggdrop. Also,
58     make SURE that you select your +n (owner) users wisely! They have 100%
59     access to your bot and account! ONLY GIVE THIS POWER TO SOMEONE YOU
60     TRUST COMPLETELY!!
61    
62    
63     (1) WHAT IS EGGDROP?
64    
65     Eggdrop is the World's most popular Internet Relay Chat (IRC) bot; it is
66     freely distributable under the GNU General Public License (GPL). Eggdrop
67     is a feature rich program designed to be easily used and expanded upon by
68     both novice and advanced IRC users on a variety of hardware and software
69     platforms.
70    
71     An IRC bot is a program that sits on an IRC channel and performs automated
72     tasks while looking just like a normal user on the channel. Some of these
73     functions include protecting the channel from abuse, allowing privileged
74     users to gain op or voice status, logging channel events, providing
75     information, hosting games, etc.
76    
77     One of the features that makes Eggdrop stand out from other bots is module
78     and Tcl scripting support. With scripts and modules, you can make the bot
79     perform almost any task you want. They can do anything from preventing
80     floods to greeting users and banning advertisers from channels.
81    
82     You can also link multiple Eggdrop bots together to form a botnet. This
83     can allow bots to op each other securely, control floods efficiently, and
84     even link channels across multiple IRC networks. It also allows the
85     Eggdrops share user lists, ban lists, exempt/invite lists, and ignore
86     lists with other bots if userfile sharing is enabled. This allows users
87     to have the same access on every bot on your botnet. It also allows the
88     bots to distribute tasks such as opping and banning users. See doc/BOTNET
89     for information on setting up a botnet.
90    
91     Eggdrop is always being improved and adjusted because there are bugs to
92     be fixed and features to be added (if the users demand them, and they make
93     actually sense). In fact, it existed for several years as v0.7 - v0.9
94 pseudo 1.2 before finally going 1.0. This version of Eggdrop is part of the 1.8 tree.
95 simple 1.1 A valiant effort has been made to chase down and destroy bugs.
96    
97     This README file contains information about how to get Eggdrop, command
98     line options for Eggdrop, what you may need to do when upgrading from
99     older versions, a list of frequently asked questions, how to set up a
100     crontab, some boring legal stuff, info about the mailing list (a great
101     place to ask questions, and a good place to report bugs, too), some basics
102     about CVS usage, and some channels where you might get help with Eggdrop.
103    
104    
105     (2) HOW TO GET EGGDROP
106    
107     Before you can compile Eggdrop, you need to have Tcl installed on your
108     system. Most systems should have Tcl on them by now -- you can check by
109     trying the command "tclsh". If it works, you will be given a "%" prompt,
110     and you can type "exit" to exit the program. This means Tcl is installed
111     on your system. If tclsh doesn't load, then Tcl probably isn't on your
112     system, and you will need to install it. The best ftp site for Tcl is
113     ftp://tcl.activestate.com/pub/tcl/.
114    
115 pseudo 1.2 Currently, the 1.8 tree of Eggdrop is developed at eggheads.org. You can
116 simple 1.1 get the latest version of Eggdrop from the following url:
117    
118     http://geteggdrop.com/
119    
120     You might try www.eggheads.org for help and information.
121    
122    
123     (2a) CVS USAGE
124    
125     You can obtain the VERY LATEST version of Eggdrop, that is still under
126     development, by using CVS. CVS means 'Concurrent Versions System' and is
127     a tool for developers to always keep source code up to date. Try 'man cvs'
128     on your shell for more information about CVS.
129    
130     This is intended only for users that know a good bit about Eggdrop. Be
131     aware that the versions of Eggdrop that you get via CVS are still being
132     developed, and may be buggy. The Eggheads Development Team will in NO WAY
133     take any responsibility for whatever might happen to you or your shell if
134     you use a CVS version of Eggdrop.
135    
136     To obtain Eggdrop over CVS, do as follows:
137    
138     1. Log into your shell.
139    
140     2. Type: 'export
141     CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs.eggheads.org:/usr/local/cvsroot'.
142    
143     3. Type 'cvs login'.
144    
145     4. Press <enter> when prompted for a password.
146    
147 pseudo 1.2 5. In your home dir, type 'cvs checkout eggdrop1.8'
148 simple 1.1
149 pseudo 1.2 6. In ~/eggdrop1.8, you should have a copy of the latest CVS version
150 simple 1.1 of Eggdrop.
151    
152     Notes:
153    
154     o You can 'cvs logout', but you don't need to.
155    
156     o You don't need to go through this whole process every time. If you
157     want to get a CVS version of Eggdrop at a later time, you can just
158 pseudo 1.2 'cd ~/eggdrop1.8' and type 'cvs update -CdAP'.
159 simple 1.1
160     o If you experience errors when using 'export', you might be using tclsh
161     as a shell. If so, try using the command 'setenv' instead of 'export':
162    
163     setenv CVSROOT :pserver:anonymous@cvs.eggheads.org:/usr/local/cvsroot
164    
165    
166     (3) QUICK STARTUP
167    
168     Please see the 'INSTALL' file AFTER you finish reading this file.
169    
170    
171     (4) UPGRADING
172    
173    
174 pseudo 1.2 (4a) UPGRADING FROM A PRE-1.3 VERSION TO 1.8
175 simple 1.1
176     #### BACK UP YOUR USERFILE ####
177    
178     We can't stress this enough. If you are upgrading and you have even a
179     slight possibility of downgrading again later, you will HAVE to back up
180     your userfile, or you will lose it. v1.3 of Eggdrop radically changed a
181     lot of things.
182    
183 pseudo 1.2 There are many major changes between v0.9, v1.0, v1.1 and v1.8, so PAY
184 simple 1.1 ATTENTION to this part if you have a v0.9, 1.0 or 1.1 bot currently. If
185     you're just starting out, you can skip this section.
186    
187     If you run share bots, you will need to upgrade them all at the same time
188     because of the new userfile format. Older bots will be able to link in,
189     but will not get or send a userfile. MAKE A NEW CONFIG FILE from the
190     example; there are some radical changes.
191    
192 pseudo 1.2 If you are upgrading from 0.9/1.0 to 1.8, just redo the whole thing.
193 simple 1.1 Absolutely everything has changed, including the userfile and config file
194     formats.
195    
196 pseudo 1.2 If you are upgrading from 1.1/1.2 to 1.8, you will likely want to redo
197 simple 1.1 the config file, as much as changed. BACK UP! You will need to run 'tclsh
198     scripts/weed/<userfile> c' to convert your userfile from v3 (1.1/1.2) to
199 pseudo 1.2 v4 (1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6/1.8).
200 simple 1.1
201    
202 pseudo 1.2 (4b) UPGRADING FROM AN OLDER 1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6 VERSION TO A NEWER 1.8 VERSION
203 simple 1.1
204     If you followed the 'INSTALL' file and did a 'make install' (or 'make
205     install DEST="path"') after 'make', this will be pretty easy. Just upload
206 pseudo 1.2 the new eggdrop1.8.x.tar.gz file to your home dir on your shell, gunzip
207     and untar it, and type 'cd ~/eggdrop1.8.x'. Next, type './configure',
208 simple 1.1 'make config' or 'make iconfig', then 'make'. Then, kill the bot ('.die'
209     on the party line), and 'make install' to the same directory your bot
210     is currently in. After that, you can just restart your bot. You may wish
211     to delete the old Eggdrop executable and modules as well, especially if
212     you have limited disk space.
213    
214     You should read through the new eggdrop.conf file for all of the new
215 pseudo 1.2 options in Eggdrop 1.8.x. You can copy and paste any of these settings
216     into you current conf file if you do not want to use the default settings.
217 simple 1.1
218    
219     (5) COMMAND LINE
220    
221     Eggdrop has some command-line options -- not many, because most things
222     should be defined through the config file. However, sometimes you may
223     want to start up the bot in a different mode, and the command-line
224     options let you do that. Basically, the command line for Eggdrop is:
225    
226     % eggdrop [options] [config-file]
227    
228     The options available are:
229    
230     -n: Don't background. Normally, Eggdrop will move itself into the
231     background when you start it up, meaning you'll get another shell
232     prompt, and you can do other things while the bot is running. With
233     -n, you won't return to the shell prompt until the bot exits (which
234     won't normally happen until it's killed). By default, -n will send
235     all log entries to the console.
236    
237     -nt: Don't background, use terminal. This is just like -n, except that
238     instead of seeing log entries, your console will simulate a DCC
239     chat with the bot.
240    
241     -nc: Don't background, show channel info. This is just like -n, except
242     that instead of seeing log entries, every 10 seconds your screen
243     will clear and you will see the current channel status, sort of
244     like "top".
245    
246     -m: Create userfile. If you don't have a userfile, this will make Eggdrop
247     create one and give owner status to the first person that introduces
248     himself or herself to it. You'll need to do this when you first set
249     up your bot.
250    
251     -h: Show help.
252    
253     -v: Show version info, then quit.
254    
255     Most people never use any of the options except -m, and you usually only
256     need to use that once.
257    
258    
259     (6) FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (or "Why doesn't this thing work?")
260    
261     6a. WHAT DO I DO IF I GET THE ERROR "USER FILE NOT FOUND"?
262    
263     1. Run Eggdrop with the "-m" option (i.e. "eggdrop -m eggdrop.conf").
264    
265     2. Go to IRC and send "hello" to your bot (i.e. "/msg mybot hello").
266    
267     3. You will become an owner on your bot. You can leave the bot running
268     (nobody else will become an owner if they say "hello"), but in the
269     future, don't use the "-m" option when running the bot.
270    
271 pseudo 1.3 6b. WHAT THE HECK IS Tcl?
272 simple 1.1
273     Tcl is a scripting language written by John Ousterhout. It's much better
274     than most "built-in" script languages (like the one in ircII) and is
275     meant to be linked with anything needing a scripting language, so I
276     linked it with Eggdrop. The file "tcl-commands.doc" in the doc directory
277     contains a list of additional Tcl commands provided by Eggdrop. There
278     are also several example scripts in the scripts/ directory, and one in
279     the doc directory called first_script.txt. Hundreds of scripts floating
280     around on the ftp/web sites if you like working by example (which is
281     typically the best way).
282    
283 pseudo 1.3 6c. MY BOT DIES, AND THE LAST ENTRY IN THE LOGFILE IS "RECEIVED TERMINATE
284 simple 1.1 SIGNAL". WHAT DOES THAT MEAN, AND CAN I PREVENT IT?
285    
286     There's nothing you can do to prevent it. It means the system
287     administrator is killing the Eggdrop process. Most of the time, it's an
288     automatic thing that happens when the system is being rebooted, so it's
289     harmless. If you have a crontab running, the bot will get restarted when
290     the system is back online. Occasionally, the system administrator will
291     kill the bot manually. For example, if he/she doesn't want bots running
292     on the system.
293    
294 pseudo 1.3 6d. SOMEONE ELSE SET UP A BOT I DON'T LIKE. ARE THERE ANY BACKDOORS I CAN
295 simple 1.1 USE TO TAKE THEIR BOT DOWN?
296    
297     No, there have never been any backdoors and there never will be, so
298     please stop asking. Every once in a while, someone finds a way to
299     exploit a bug in Eggdrop, but we fix these bugs as soon as we find out
300     about them. If you want to bring down someone else's bot, you will not
301     have my/our help.
302    
303 pseudo 1.3 6e. WHAT ARE MODULES?
304 simple 1.1
305     Modules are a way of adding extra features to the bot, much like Tcl
306     scripts, without requiring the bot to be recompiled. See doc/MODULES
307     for more information.
308    
309 pseudo 1.3 6f. CAN I COMPILE EGGDROP WITHOUT DYNAMIC MODULES?
310 simple 1.1
311     Yes, you can. If the configure script detects that your system CAN'T
312     run modules, it will setup 'make' to link the modules in statically
313     for you. You can choose this option yourself by using 'make static'.
314     You can also try to compile dynamic modules on a static-only system
315     by using 'make eggdrop'.
316    
317 pseudo 1.3 6f1. DO I STILL NEED TO 'loadmodule' MODULES?
318 simple 1.1
319     YES, when you compile statically, all the modules are linked into the
320     main executable. HOWEVER, they are not enabled until you use loadmodule
321     to enable them, hence you get nearly the same functionality with static
322     modules as with dynamic modules.
323    
324 pseudo 1.3 6g. WHERE CAN I GET A PRE-COMPILED EGGDROP FOR MY COMPUTER?
325 simple 1.1
326     It is HIGHLY recommended AGAINST using pre-compiled Eggdrops from
327     un-trusted sources. Eggdrop has been a regular target for hacking and
328     crashing. Distribution of pre-compiled (binary) versions of Eggdrop are
329     the easiest way for hackers to provide you with the easiest (and most
330     dangerous) way of gaining access to, not only your bot, but to your
331     computer account directly. Don't advertise your pre-compiled Eggdrop
332     binary sites on the Eggdrop list either. =P
333    
334 pseudo 1.3 6h. I GET 'Makefile:3 :invalid operator' OR SOME-SUCH-THING WHEN I TRY
335 simple 1.1 TO 'make'.
336    
337     Try 'gmake'.
338    
339 pseudo 1.3 6i. WHEN I 'tclsh scripts/weed <userfile> c' IT BARFS CHUNKS AT ME AND
340 simple 1.1 DIES. :(
341    
342     Upgrade your Tcl. You are probably using Tcl 7.5 or earlier. Some of the
343     commands in weed require Tcl7.6 to run, so either upgrade it or remove
344     the offending lines from you userfile manually (those starting with '.'
345     generally) and accept the loss of that data.
346    
347 pseudo 1.3 6j. I GET "ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libtcl80.so.1" not found" or
348 simple 1.1 "eggdrop: error in loading shared libraries libtcl8.1.so: \
349     cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" WHEN I TRY
350     TO START MY BOT.
351    
352     './configure' is looking in the wrong place for Tcl; it looks like it
353     compiled with one version of Tcl and tries to load another. Maybe your
354     sysadmin upgraded Tcl and didn't tell you. In that case, you should just
355     need to recompile your bot.
356    
357     Maybe, when upgrading, he didn't clean the old version of Tcl and
358     './configure' is looking for the files in the wrong places, or trying
359     to use different versions of tcl.h and libtcl*. Smack your admin and
360     have him install Tcl properly. ;)
361    
362     You can also try:
363    
364     ./configure --with-tcllib=<path-to-tcl-lib>
365     --with-tclinc=<path-to-tcl-inc>
366    
367     This will tell configure where to look for the Tcl files.
368    
369     Try looking for libtcl by:
370    
371     ls /usr/lib/libtcl*
372     ls /usr/local/lib/libtcl*
373    
374     Try looking for tcl.h by:
375    
376     ls /usr/include/tcl.h
377     ls /usr/local/include/tcl.h
378    
379     If everything else fails, try to install Tcl to your home dir ;)
380     (Suggested by dw@Undernet, dw@lixom.nu)
381    
382 pseudo 1.3 6k. I GET A WHOLE PILE OF "Unresolved symbol 'Tcl_AppendResult'" (OR SOME
383 simple 1.1 OTHER SYMBOL) WHEN I TRY TO LOAD A MODULES.
384    
385 pseudo 1.3 POSSIBILITY A: See section 6j.
386 simple 1.1
387     POSSIBILITY B:
388    
389     Some of the standard libraries have been compiled for static linking
390     only on your machine, you have 3 options:
391    
392     1. If it's your own machine, recompile Tcl using dynamic linking by
393     using './configure --enable-shared' when you configure Tcl (not
394     the bot) and then remake, and reinstall.
395    
396     2. If it's not your machine, you may have to resort to 'make static'
397     and 'make install DEST="path"' to make and install your bot.
398    
399     3. If you are of a more aggressive sense of mind, go beat the
400     stuffing out of your admin for having lame static libraries. :)
401    
402    
403     (7) SETTING UP A CRONTAB
404    
405     Eggdrop has become more stable with time, thanks mostly to people
406     reporting bug details and helping find places where it crashes. However,
407     there are still a -few- places where things aren't perfect. Few, if any,
408     things in life are.
409    
410     Also, most systems go down from time to time. These things cause your bot
411     to disappear from IRC, and you have to restart it.
412    
413     Eggdrop comes with a shell script called 'botchk' that will help keep the
414     bot online. It will make the machine check every ten minutes to make sure
415     your bot is still running. To use it, you have to add a line to your
416     crontab. First, edit 'botchk' and change the directory and command line
417     parameters so that it will be able to start up your bot. Then, add this
418     line to your crontab:
419    
420     0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /home/mydir/botchk
421    
422     If you don't want to get e-mails from cron, use this:
423    
424     0,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * /home/mydir/botchk >/dev/null 2>&1
425    
426     Naturally, you need to change the path to the correct path for botchk. If
427     you've never used crontab before, here is a simple way to add that line:
428    
429     1. Create a new file called 'mycron' and put the above line into it.
430    
431     2. From your shell prompt, type '% crontab mycron'.
432    
433     That will create a new crontab entry for you with a line that runs botchk
434     every ten minutes. Botchk will then restart the bot when necessary (and
435     send you email informing you).

438     (7a) SETTING UP A CRONTAB USING AUTOBOTCHK
439    
440     Included with your Eggdrop is an Eggdrop utility called 'autobotchk'.
441     Using autobotchk is probably the fastest way of creating your botchk and
442     crontabbing it with just a few required steps:
443    
444     1. Type 'cp scripts/autobotchk ..'.
445    
446     2. Type './autobotchk <Eggdrop config file>'.
447    
448     This will hopefully crontab your bot using the default setup. If you want
449     a list of autobotchk options, type './autobotchk'. An example with options
450     would be:
451    
452     ./autobotchk <Eggdrop config file> -noemail -5
453    
454     This would setup crontab to run the botchk every 5 minutes and also to
455     not send you e-mail saying that it restarted your bot.
456

458     (8) BORING LEGAL STUFF
459    
460     The Eggdrop bot is Copyright (C) by Robey Pointer. As of January, 1997,
461     Eggdrop is distributed according to the GNU General Public License. There
462     should be a copy of this license in the file 'COPYING'. If not, write to
463     the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 675 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA.
464    
465     As of Eggdrop 1.3.28, all changes made by the Eggheads Development Team to
466     the Eggdrop source code and any related files are Copyright (C) by Eggheads
467     Development Team. The source code will still be distributed according to
468     the GNU General Public License as Robey Pointer did in the past.
469    
470     Releases previous to 1.0m were made using a different licensing scheme.
471     You may, at your option, use the GNU General Public License on those
472     versions (instead of the license packaged with them) with my blessing.
473     For any versions bearing a copyright date of 1997 or later, you have
474     no choice -- you must use the GNU General Public License.
475    
476     The files "match.c", "net.c", and "blowfish.c" are exempt from the above
477     restrictions. "match.c" is original code by Chris Fuller (email:
478     crf@cfox.bchs.uh.edu) and has been placed by him into the public domain.
479     "net.c" is by me, and I [Robey Pointer] also choose to place it in the
480     public domain. "blowfish.c" is by various sources and is in the public
481     domain as well. All 3 files contain useful functions that could easily
482     be ported to other applications.
483    
484     Tcl is by John Ousterhout and is in no way affiliated with Eggdrop. It
485     likely has its own set of copyrights and whatnots.
486    
487     There is no warranty, implied or whatever. You use this software at your
488     own risk, no matter what purpose you put it to.
489    
490    
491     (9) MAILING LIST
492    
493     There are currently a couple of mailing lists about Eggdrop.
494     eggheads@eggheads.org is the one relevant for posts about Eggdrop 1.4 and
495     up (suggestions, help, etc).
496    
497     To subscribe to the eggheads mailing list, send e-mail to
498     eggheads-request@eggheads.org. In the body of the message, put "subscribe
499     eggheads". You can also go to the following url:
500    
501     http://lists.eggheads.org/mailman/listinfo/eggheads
502    
503     ### DO NOT SEND ROBEY EMAIL ABOUT EGGDROP! ###
504    
505     Robey is no longer developing the Eggdrop code, so don't bother e-mailing
506     him. If you have a serious problem, email the eggheads mailing list and
507     it will get to the coders.
508    
509     Please, before posting to this list, see what things are like. When you do
510     post, read over your post for readability, spelling, and grammar mistakes.
511     Obviously, we're all human (or are we?) and we all make mistakes (heck,
512     look at this document! ;).
513    
514     Open discussion and debate is integral to change and progress. Don't flame
515     others over mere form (grammar and spelling), or even substantive issues
516     for that matter. Please read and follow the mailing list rules.
517    
518     The eggheads@eggheads.org mailing list is not dedicated to those all too
519     common questions we have all seen on other lists... For example:
520    
521     o "Why does my bot say this: Please edit your config file."
522     o "How do I telnet my bot?"
523     o "Where do I get Eggdrop for windows??????"
524    
525     Technical questions, your thoughts or suggestions on new features being
526     added to Eggdrop, things that should be removed or fixed, amazing problems
527     that even stump the guru's, etc. are what we want to see here.
528    
529     Bug reports should be sent to bugs@eggheads.org. Please read and fill out
530     the BUG-REPORT file in the doc directory.
531    
532     DO NOT SEND HTML E-MAILS TO ANY OF THE EGGHEADS.ORG MAILING LISTS. ANYONE
533     CAUGHT SENDING HTML E-MAILS TO ONE OF THESE LISTS WILL BE REMOVED
534     IMMEDIATELY!
535    
536    
537     (10) DOCUMENTATION
538    
539     We're trying to keep the documentation up to date. If you feel that
540     anything is missing here or that anything should be added, etc, please
541     e-mail bugs@eggheads.org about it. Thank you.
542    
543
