[b7d3cc34]1This directory contains tiny additional programs which you might just like
2or need to run BitlBee:
3
4
5* bitlbeed.c
6
7If you want to run BitlBee on a machine you don't have root access to, this
8utility will help you. Compiling it is easy: 'gcc bitlbeed.c -o bitlbeed',
9you don't need any special flags. Use 'bitlbeed -h' to get more help.
10
11For example, 'bitlbeed -p6669 -n1 /home/wilmer/bin/bitlbee' will start
12listening on TCP port 6669 (on any interface, you might not want that!)
13and connect the specified BitlBee program to this socket as soon as
14someone connects. The -n1 makes sure only one person can be connected
15at once.
16
17Of course this program can be used for other programs too, not just BitlBee.
18
19
20* create_nicksfile.pl (Christian Friedl <christian.friedl@chello.at>)
21
22This program reads your ~/.licq/ configuration data and convert it to a
23correct .nicks file. This program can be extended to read other contact
24list file formats as well.
25
26
27* centericq2bitlbee.sh (geno <geno@xenyon.com>)
28
29Converter script for CenterICQ ICQ contact lists. See the documentation
30for more information.
31
32
33* convert_gnomeicu.txt
34
35Not a program, but this one contains a regex which should correctly
36convert GnomeICU configuration files into the BitlBee format.
37
38
39* Dynamic MOTD for BitlBee (Geert Hauwaerts <geert@hauwaerts.be>)
40
41Originally, I wanted to put this program here, but Geert put it online
42on his own server, with docs and stuff, so I guess it's better to put
43a link here. dmotd is a little script which generates a motd with some
44nice statistics, especially nice for servers with many people on it.
45
46See http://dmotd.hauwaerts.be/ for more information.

49* BitlBee-specific Irssi scripts for: tab completion, typing notifica-
[fe51bcf]50tions, auto-away and more, by Tijmen Ruizendaal <tijmen.ruizendaal@gmail.com>.

52There are too many scripts to include them all with BitlBee (and keep
53them up-to-date), so you should get them from Tijmen's site:
