Purple - Perl extension to the libpurple instant messenger library.  

SYNOPSIS

  use Purple;

 

ABSTRACT

  This module provides the interface for using perl scripts as plugins
  in libpurple.

 

DESCRIPTION

This module provides the interface for using perl scripts as plugins in Purple. With this, developers can write perl scripts that can be loaded in Purple as plugins. The scripts can interact with IMs, chats, accounts, the buddy list, libpurple signals, and more.

The API for the perl interface is very similar to that of the Purple C API, which can be viewed at http://developer.pidgin.im/doxygen/ or in the header files in the Purple source tree.
