Creates cartoons based on funny channel messages.
When the plugin recognises that someone has said anything in an IRC channel which others
find amusing, it creates a cartoon based on the funny channel messages.
This is a modified version of the ComicBot
The configuration file for this plugin is system/ComicBot/ComicBotConfig.xml
Specifies in which directory the cartoons shall be created. Infact it
will create one sub directory per channel in the directory specified by
outputDirectory parameter. If default value 'comics' is kept, the cartoons will be created
under the comics sub directory to your PPF installation directory. If you want to
use another directory, please specify the full path to the directory,
e.g. /opt/funstuff/comics on Linux/Unix or c:/funstuff/comics on Windows.
If the comics directory does not exists, PPF will automatically create it for you.
When a new cartoon has been generated with funny messages from a channel,
PPF will announce the cartoon creation to that channnel. With this parameter,
you can determine how PPF shall start the announcement.
<createdMessage>New comic created</createdMessage>
There is an option to have the cartoons automatically uploaded to
a webserver using FTP if you would like to share the cartoons with the other people.
enable - YES, NO
ip - Your FTP server's hostname or IP address
port - Your FTP server's port number. Keep 21 for most installations
username - A valid FTP server account
password - A valid FTP server password
dir - The remote directory where to copy the cartoons
<ftp ip="ftp.yoursite.com" port="21" username="username" password="password" dir=""/>
If uploading cartoons to a FTP server, you may want to tell the channel users
which URL they can watch the cartoons. This is what the viewingURL parameter
is for. The viewing URL is also appended to the createdMessage if you have turned
upload on. A showFilename attribute can be used to specify if the cartoon filename
shall be included in the channel message. Most installations will probably keep
the default value of TRUE for showFilename. If you have created a web application
which by itself can determine the filename of latest cartoon, or if you want to use
directory listing capabilities on your webserver, you can set showFilename to FALSE.
showFilename - TRUE, FALSE
The plugin determines which channel messages that are considered to be funny by
comparing channel messages to a set of pre-defined triggers.
