This is not a direct answer to your question, but I did find some problems with Net::IRC.

I recently found that SlashNET presumes that a client is disconnected if it does not send PING messages at a regular pace. Net::IRC doesn't, and trying to fix it using do_one_loop made me discover that this function should be called from a package when working with use warnings;. I also had to hack the module to add support for the PONG answer message.

perl -ple'$_=reverse' <<<ti.xittelop@oivalf

Don't fool yourself.
