SYNOPSIS

        use strict;
        use warnings;
        use POE qw(Component::IRC Component::IRC::Plugin::CTCP);

        my $nickname = 'Flibble' . $$;
        my $ircname = 'Flibble the Sailor Bot';
        my $ircserver = 'irc.blahblahblah.irc';
        my $port = 6667;

        my $irc = POE::Component::IRC->spawn(
            nick => $nickname,
            server => $ircserver,
            port => $port,
            ircname => $ircname,
        ) or die "Oh noooo! $!";

        POE::Session->create(
            package_states => [
                main => [ qw(_start) ],
            ],
        );

        $poe_kernel->run();

        sub _start {
            # Create and load our CTCP plugin
            $irc->plugin_add( 'CTCP' => POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::CTCP->new(
                version => $ircname,
                userinfo => $ircname,
            ));

            $irc->yield( register => 'all' );
            $irc->yield( connect => { } );
            return:
        }

DESCRIPTION

       POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::CTCP is a POE::Component::IRC plugin. It watches for
       "irc_ctcp_version", "irc_ctcp_userinfo", "irc_ctcp_ping", "irc_ctcp_time" and
       "irc_ctcp_source" events and autoresponds on your behalf.

METHODS

   "new"
       Takes a number of optional arguments:

       'version', a string to send in response to "irc_ctcp_version". Default is PoCo-IRC and
       version;

       'clientinfo', a string to send in response to "irc_ctcp_clientinfo".  Default is
       <http://search.cpan.org/perldoc?POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::CTCP>.

       'userinfo', a string to send in response to "irc_ctcp_userinfo". Default is 'm33p';

       'source', a string to send in response to "irc_ctcp_source". Default is
       http://search.cpan.org/dist/POE-Component-IRC <http://search.cpan.org/dist/POE-Component-
       IRC>.

       'eat', by default the plugin uses PCI_EAT_CLIENT, set this to 0 to disable this behaviour;

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

   "eat"
       With no arguments, returns true or false on whether the plugin is "eating" CTCP events
       that it has dealt with. An argument will set "eating" to on or off appropriately,
       depending on whether the value is true or false.
