NAME

       POE::Component::IRC::Plugin::DCC - A PoCo-IRC plugin providing support for DCC transfers

SYNOPSIS

        # send a file
        my $file = '/home/user/secret.pdf';
        my $recipient = 'that_guy';
        $irc->yield(dcc => $recipient => SEND => $file);

        # receive a file
        sub irc_dcc_request {
            my ($user, $type, $port, $cookie, $file, $size, $addr) = @_[ARG0..$#_];
            return if $type ne 'SEND';

            my $irc = $_[SENDER]->get_heap();
            my $nick = (split /!/, $user)[0];

            print "$nick wants to send me '$file' ($size bytes) from $addr:$port\n");
            $irc->yield(dcc_accept => $cookie);
        }

DESCRIPTION

       This plugin provides the IRC commands needed to make use of DCC. It is used internally by
       POE::Component::IRC so there's no need to add it manually.

METHODS

   "new"
       Takes no arguments.

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

   "dccports"
       Sets the TCP ports that can be used for DCC sends. Takes one argument, an arrayref
       containing the port numbers.

   "nataddr"
       Sets the public NAT address to be used for DCC sends.

   "dcc_info"
       Takes one argument, a DCC connection id (see below). Returns a hash of information about
       the connection. The keys are: 'nick', 'type', 'port', 'file', 'size', 'done,', and
       'peeraddr'.

COMMANDS

       The plugin responds to the following POE::Component::IRC commands.

   "dcc"
       Send a DCC SEND or CHAT request to another person. Takes at least two arguments: the
       nickname of the person to send the request to and the type of DCC request (SEND or CHAT).
       For SEND requests, be sure to add a third argument for the filename you want to send.
       Optionally, you can add a fourth argument for the DCC transfer blocksize, but the default
       of 1024 should usually be fine. The fifth (and optional) argument is the request timeout
       value in seconds (default: 300).

       Incidentally, you can send other weird nonstandard kinds of DCCs too; just put something
       besides 'SEND' or 'CHAT' (say, 'FOO') in the type field, and you'll get back "irc_dcc_foo"
       events (with the same arguments as "irc_dcc_chat") when data arrives on its DCC
       connection.

       If you are behind a firewall or Network Address Translation, you may want to consult
       POE::Component::IRC's "connect" for some parameters that are useful with this command.

   "dcc_accept"
       Accepts an incoming DCC connection from another host. First argument: the magic cookie
       from an "irc_dcc_request" event.  In the case of a DCC GET, the second argument can
       optionally specify a new name for the destination file of the DCC transfer, instead of
       using the sender's name for it. (See the "irc_dcc_request" section below for more
       details.)

   "dcc_resume"
       Resumes a DCC SEND file transfer. First argument: the magic cookie from an
       "irc_dcc_request" event. An optional second argument provides the name of the file to
       which you want to write.

   "dcc_chat"
       Sends lines of data to the person on the other side of a DCC CHAT connection.  The first
       argument should be the wheel id of the connection which you got from an "irc_dcc_start"
       event, followed by all the data you wish to send (it'll be separated with newlines for
       you).

   "dcc_close"
       Terminates a DCC SEND or GET connection prematurely, and causes DCC CHAT connections to
       close gracefully. Takes one argument: the wheel id of the connection which you got from an
       "irc_dcc_start" (or similar) event.

OUTPUT EVENTS

   "irc_dcc_request"
       Note: This event is actually emitted by POE::Filter::IRC::Compat, but documented here to
       keep all the DCC documentation in one place. In case you were wondering.

       You receive this event when another IRC client sends you a DCC (e.g. SEND or CHAT) request
       out of the blue. You can examine the request and decide whether or not to accept it (with
       "dcc_accept") here. In the case of DCC SENDs, you can also request to resume the file with
       "dcc_resume".

       Note: DCC doesn't provide a way to explicitly reject requests, so if you don't intend to
       accept one, just ignore it or send a NOTICE or PRIVMSG to the peer explaining why you're
       not going to accept.
