Direct Client Connection protocol type CHAT.

DCC CHAT is really just your run o' the mill basic.LineReceiver protocol. This class only varies from that slightly, accepting either LF or CR LF for a line delimeter for incoming messages while always using CR LF for outgoing.

The lineReceived method implemented here uses the DCC connection's 'client' attribute (provided upon construction) to deliver incoming lines from the DCC chat via IRCClient's normal privmsg interface. That's something of a spoof, which you may well want to override.

Method __init__ Initialize a new DCC CHAT session.
Method dataReceived Protocol.dataReceived. Translates bytes into lines, and calls lineReceived (or rawDataReceived, depending on mode.)
Method lineReceived Override this for when each line is received.

Inherited from LineReceiver:

Class Variable delimiter The line-ending delimiter to use. By default this is b'\r\n'.
Class Variable MAX_LENGTH The maximum length of a line to allow (If a sent line is longer than this, the connection is dropped). Default is 16384.
Method clearLineBuffer Clear buffered data.
Method setLineMode Sets the line-mode of this receiver.
Method setRawMode Sets the raw mode of this receiver. Further data received will be sent to rawDataReceived rather than lineReceived.
Method rawDataReceived Override this for when raw data is received.
Method sendLine Sends a line to the other end of the connection.
Method lineLengthExceeded Called when the maximum line length has been reached. Override if it needs to be dealt with in some special way.

Inherited from Protocol (via LineReceiver):

Method logPrefix Return a prefix matching the class name, to identify log messages related to this protocol instance.
Method connectionLost Called when the connection is shut down.

Inherited from BaseProtocol (via LineReceiver, Protocol):

Method makeConnection Make a connection to a transport and a server.
Method connectionMade Called when a connection is made.

Inherited from _PauseableMixin (via LineReceiver):

Method pauseProducing Undocumented
Method resumeProducing Undocumented
Method stopProducing Undocumented

Inherited from Ephemeral:

Method __reduce__ Serialize any subclass of Ephemeral in a way which replaces it with Ephemeral itself.
Method __getstate__ Undocumented
Method __setstate__ Undocumented
def __init__(self, client, queryData=None): (source)

Initialize a new DCC CHAT session.

queryData is a 3-tuple of (fromUser, targetUserOrChannel, data) as received by the CTCP query.

(To be honest, fromUser is the only thing that's currently used here. targetUserOrChannel is potentially useful, while the 'data' argument is solely for informational purposes.)

def dataReceived(self, data): (source)

Protocol.dataReceived. Translates bytes into lines, and calls lineReceived (or rawDataReceived, depending on mode.)

def lineReceived(self, line): (source)

Override this for when each line is received.

ParameterslineThe line which was received with the delimiter removed. (type: bytes)
