Ok, good point.... but how do I issue commands? let's say I have
a IRCClient class called "testIRC".
do I use: testIRC.sendLine('signedOn') to send the command to the
or do I: testIRC.register('mynick', 'myhost', 'irc.debian.com')
then, when I want to do the "who" command, would I do:
then, i would expect to call me back, so I would override the
def action(self, user, channel, msg):
< extract the info I want from msg and store it somewhere, probably
in an instance variable in testIRC object >
reactor.stop() --- to exit the client and disconnect, or
would I have to put the reactor.stop() in the
factory's "clientConnectionFailed" method, which I would
override of course.
It's things like this that throw me totally for a loop. Where to put
things.... what gets the call back...

Yea - and while everyone is partying, i take this wonderful
opportunity to get some serious coding
done, because the place is so quiet, and I'm too broke to do anything

Ok, if "action" isn't the callback which I override to get the output
of the who command,
then what is?
luserChannels - Called with the number of channels existant on the
server (ALMOST what I want)
luserOp - Called with the number of ops logged on to the server
(GETTING CLOSER - NOT QUITE)
luserMe - Called with information about the server connected to.
(CLOSEST YET - but no IP address info)
Ok, so how do these get called? As far as I can tell,
method = getattr(self, "irc_%s" % command, None)
which it then somehow then calls back to:
def irc_RPL_LUSERME(self, prefix, params):
I really want: RPL_WHOISSERVER, but (sigh) it's not there. Nobody
bothered to finish this
Could I add this to my IRCClient's subclass?
def irc_RPL_WHOISSERVER(self, prefix, params):
def whois(self, prefix, info):
< then in this code, get the info? - then after that do the
reactor.stop() so I can fall out of the reactor.run()
Is this all I have to do.... but then would 'getattr' as you see
above, know how to get the method name?
Or would I have to add this somehow to another dictionary?
If so, how do I do it? and if i have to do it, how do I find the
reference to the dictionary?
Anyway, other then being totally confused, is there any hope? I
think I'm just missing a few
critical steps. Or do I have them all?

No shit sherlock.... now i got to figure out why it's not calling my
