Perlbot is an IRC bot that depends on Net::IRC. Its goals are simplicity, a small footprint, and modularity. It's meant as a more easily configured but less robust alternative to bots like eggdrop. It's also noticeably faster by the authors' tests. The base bot allows auto-opping, notes, multiple channels, etc., but much much more is possible through the use of plugins. Many plugins are included, and it should be easy for anyone with some knowledge of Perl to write her own.
