        use POE qw(Component::IRC::State Component::IRC::Plugin::AutoJoin);

        my $nickname = 'Chatter';
        my $server = 'irc.blahblahblah.irc';

        my %channels = (
            '#Blah'   => '',
            '#Secret' => 'secret_password',

                Nick => $nickname,
                Server => $server,
            ) or die "Oh noooo! $!";

            $irc->plugin_add('AutoJoin', POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::AutoJoin->new( Channels => \%channels ));

        sub irc_join {

       POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::AutoJoin is a POE::Component::IRC plugin. If you get
       disconnected, the plugin will join all the channels you were on the next time it gets
       connected to the IRC server. It can also rejoin a channel if the IRC component gets kicked
       from it. It keeps track of channel keys so it will be able to rejoin keyed channels in
       case of reconnects/kicks.

       If a POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickServID plugin has been added to the IRC component,
       then AutoJoin will wait for a reply from NickServ before joining channels on connect.

       This plugin requires the IRC component to be POE::Component::IRC::State or a subclass


       Takes the following optional arguments:

       'Channels', either an array reference of channel names, or a hash reference keyed on
       channel name, containing the password for each channel. By default it uses the channels
       the component is already on if you are using POE::Component::IRC::State.

       'RejoinOnKick', set this to 1 if you want the plugin to try to rejoin a channel (once) if
       you get kicked from it. Default is 0.

       'Rejoin_delay', the time, in seconds, to wait before rejoining a channel after being
       kicked (if 'RejoinOnKick' is on). Default is 5.

       'Retry_when_banned', if you can't join a channel due to a ban, set this to the number of
       seconds to wait between retries. Default is 0 (disabled).

       'NickServ_delay', how long (in seconds) to wait for a reply from NickServ before joining
       channels. Default is 5.

       Returns a plugin object suitable for feeding to POE::Component::IRC's "plugin_add" method.
