Projects / Ebotula


Ebotula is an IRC bot for administration tasks in one or more channels. It has four access levels. The top level is the bot master, where a user has complete access to all functions. The channel owner is the administrator in one channel. The other levels are friends and other users. The bot is a multithread application and can execute more commands simultaneously. The data are contained in gdbm hash files.

Recent releases

  •  13 Sep 2004 19:41

    Release Notes: This release removes a large number of memory leaks, a problem with counting commands, and the segmentation faults caused by a few commands. It features support of nls with a German language file and a new concept for the debug logging. This logging has a separate configuration parameter; it controls the debug level.

      Release Notes: This version fixes the crash when using the command !topic, as well as a few memory leaks.

      •  09 May 2004 13:55

        Release Notes: This version fixes a lot of memory leaks, and is more robust. The logoff command and the detection of unknown command line parameters were also fixed. The mechanism for preventing execess flooding has been modified. The new algorithm calculates the number of characters sent by the bot every minute. This value controls how fast a message is sent to the IRC server, and it reduces the reaction time of a command.

        •  08 Feb 2004 13:03

          Release Notes: The command parser was cleaned up and the IRC command pong was adjusted against the RFC 2812.

          •  31 Jan 2004 21:52

            Release Notes: This version fixes a lot of little bugs. Simple CTCP support was added. The limit of excess flood protection was changed. The new limit now depends on the number of characters which were sent.
