NAME

       POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickReclaim - A PoCo-IRC plugin for reclaiming your nickname

SYNOPSIS

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

        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 {
            $irc->yield( register => 'all' );

            # Create and load our NickReclaim plugin, before we connect
            $irc->plugin_add( 'NickReclaim' =>
                POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickReclaim->new( poll => 30 ) );

            $irc->yield( connect => { } );
            return;
        }

DESCRIPTION

       POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::NickReclaim - A POE::Component::IRC plugin automagically
       deals with your bot's nickname being in use and reclaims it when it becomes available
       again.

       It registers and handles 'irc_433' events. On receiving a 433 event it will reset the
       nickname to the 'nick' specified with "spawn" or "connect", appendedwith an underscore,
       and then poll to try and change it to the original nickname. If someone in your channel
       who has the nickname you're after quits or changes nickname, the plugin will try to
       reclaim it immediately.

METHODS

   "new"
       Takes one optional argument:

       'poll', the number of seconds between nick change attempts, default is 30;

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