in reply to POE::Component::IRC event loop stuck?

I think you need to limit your join messages. As far as I understand your code, your bot will try to join all channels, and only after that post the message and part the channel.

Also, your sequence flow seems odd, because in the else branch, you set $data_entry->notified('true'), which seems odd.

I would try looking at either the following batched sequence:

$irc->yield(join => $msg_channel); $irc->yield(privmsg => $msg_channel, $message); $irc->yield(part => $msg_channel);

... or a sequence that keeps track of all channels and their state:

my @channels_to_notify = get_unused_channels(); my @joined_channels; my @notified_channels; # in a timer, every minute or so: while(@channels_to_notify) { if( @joined_channels < 100 ) { my $name = shift @channels_to_notify; join_channel( $name ); }; }; # This should trigger on the message when you(r bot) joins a channel sub on_join { my ($name) = @_; $irc->yield(privmsg => $msg_channel, $message); $irc->yield(part => $msg_channel); }; # This should trigger on the message when you(r bot) parts a channel sub on_part { my ($name) = @_; @joined_channels = grep { $_ ne $name } @joined_channels; };

    I was trying to limit the amount of code I posted, but clearly I have left some key pieces out ;). Here is the joina nd part events from the code I'm working with, which try to do some of what you have suggested:

    sub irc_join { my $heap = $_[HEAP]; my $nick = ( split /!/, $_[ARG0] )[0]; my $channel = $_[ARG1]; my $hash_channel = (split /#/, $channel)[1]; my $irc = $_[SENDER]->get_heap(); my $joincount = $heap->{joincount}; my $batch_of_channels = $heap->{batch_of_channels_hash}; my $verbose = $heap->{verbose}; my $message = $heap->{cleanup_message}; my $nickname = $heap->{nickname}; my $channel_db = $heap->{channel_info_db}; $logger->info("Got join event from $channel as $$nickname - person + joining was $nick"); if ( $nick eq $irc->nick_name() ) { # Number of channels joined $$joincount++; $logger->info("Which is $$joincount channels joined now"); # Only send the message if we're the one joining $logger->info("Messaging $channel"); # Mark the channel as joined $batch_of_channels->{$hash_channel}{joined} = 1; # Mark the channel as "being messaged" in the database, so it +won't get selected in by mistake my $data_entry = $channel_db->resultset('Channel')->find({name + => $hash_channel}); $data_entry->being_messaged('true'); $data_entry->update; $irc->yield(privmsg => $channel, $message); $irc->yield(part => $channel); } return; } sub irc_part { my $heap = $_[HEAP]; my $nick = ( split /!/, $_[ARG0] )[0]; my $channel = $_[ARG1]; my $hash_channel = (split /#/, $channel)[1]; my $part_msg = $_[ARG2]; my $irc = $_[SENDER]->get_heap(); my $joincount = $heap->{joincount}; my $batch_of_channels = $heap->{batch_of_channels_hash}; my $verbose = $heap->{verbose}; my $message = $heap->{cleanup_message}; my $nickname = $heap->{nickname}; my $channel_db = $heap->{channel_info_db}; $logger->info("Got part event from $channel as $$nickname - person + leaving was $nick"); if ($nick eq $irc->nick_name()) { $$joincount--; $logger->info("Left a channel, so $$joincount channels joined +now"); $batch_of_channels->{$hash_channel}{joined} = 0; } }

      I've written an extensive bot using Net-IRC...even though this is an out dated and no longer developed Perl Module I have used it since it was originally coded and has run on a good sized IRC network since 2001.
