Installing Mozbot Modules

Installing a new mozbot module is quite easy. First, copy the .bm file (e.g. into the BotModule/ directory.

<IRCMonkey> auth IRCMonkey password
   <mozbot> Hi IRCMonkey!
<IRCMonkey> load Foo
   <mozbot> Loaded module 'Foo'.

You can then find out more about the module using the help command.

<IRCMonkey> help
