Perl module

Post by crusader » Wed Jan 26, 2005 12:02 pm

I have to setup a new server based on another existing machine, which is running a ircd 2.10.x IRC Service. This service runs with a perl script plugged in as module. My question is, is it possible to plug in such a perl script as module in unrealircd? If not is there another possiblity to run this scirpt in conjunction with unreal ircd. This script has the job of checking users against a list of users in a Postgres DB.

To my knowledge Unreal can't load script files as modules, but I suppose you could tweak the perl script to connect to the server as a server, and monitor user connections (eg, like how services do it). Or you can have it link as a client, oper it, and monitor the connect notices.

Do you know where I can get some hints to do such a tweaking?

RFC1459 and a book on Perl?
