AboutThis software is a special perl daemon, who login to your old obsolete icq account and responds all incoming messages with jabber promotion.
Why?It was developed during an hour, one late night, because I was tired of icq bugs and changes of protocol and so on, and decided to migrate on jabber. But a lot of people, who knows me, still uses icq, and they have to be informed about my new contacts and about how great the jabber is ;)
How-toInstall perl Install dependencies: root@server# cpan
> install Net::OSCAR
> install Text::Iconv
> install Config::General
> install File::HomeDir
quit Copy icqbot script anywhere you want it to be, for example /usr/local/bin Copy .icqbotrc file and .icqbot dir to your home dir if you will run icqbot manually, or to /root, if it will be running from autostarting scripts. Edit .icqbotrc, write there your icq number and password, prefix and suffix for messages. Notice: icqbot sends random messages, with content from .icqbot dir, so, you can replace it with your own jabber promotion messages. File names in .icqbot dir don't matter. run icqbot, or write it's call to /etc/rc.local Enjoy ;) PS. TODO: make install script from all this stuff ~
