I own a channel on an irc server for the clan i am co-founder of and i have been searching for a good chat-bot (ala Monty perhaps) which runs on linux. I have had no luck so far, though I came across J-Alice (http://j-alice.sourceforge.net
); i downloaded and extracted it, but found no way to run it, let alone connect it to the irc channel.
I would prefer a bot which comes with a database of responses, and which can learn from anyone; even if they are not authorized to the bot, since not all who visit the channel know how to login and such.
Thanks in advance for anything.
