in reply to Using POE::Component::IRC

Net::IRC is much easier to install, understand and use. It takes less memory and isn't prone to spawn a hundred zombies if you make a mistake. I'm curious about why POE provides a better solution? Thanks.

    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.
