Can't get Eliza going (libchatbot-eliza-perl)


Hi, I installed libchatbot-eliza-perl on my Ubuntu 16.04 machine. This program runs Eliza, the old AI program. But I can't figure out how to start it.

I went to the site and found this:

Quote:
This is all you need to do to launch a simple Eliza session:

use Chatbot::Eliza;

$mybot = new Chatbot::Eliza;
$mybot->command_interface;
I tried the command, but it didn't work. I'm not sure what to do.

Okay, I did figure this out. There's a file named "simple", which is the basic Eliza program (there are a couple of other variations, like other languages, also). So, changing to the directory of the file and running the command worked. To illustrate:

Code:
/usr/share/doc/libchatbot-eliza-perl/examples$ perl simple
The command was in the directory /usr/share/doc/libchatbot-eliza-perl/examples, so I went to that directory and ran the command "perl simple" and it started my session with Liz. I ended the session by saying "Goodbye Liz" with Liz responding,

Code:
Liz:	I think you should talk to a REAL analyst.  Ciao!
..and then Liz closed the program.
