Hi,
I'm searching for a simple script that brings my page's news to irc. dont actually have an rss feed but that shouldnt be a problem. (easiest way imo)

tried some rss scripts but didnt find the right one:
it should send NEW headlines to irc automatically (and by typting !news or sth). format: Newstext [linktonews]

thanks for help Wink

Do a search on the Tcl Archive on 'rss' word and you'll find at least 3 scripts. Check demond's rss script..

Code:

Quote:

# set your feed(s) sources here: channel, poll frequency in mins, feed URL
#
#set feeds(#chan1) {17 http://www.osnews.com/files/recent.rdf}
#set feeds(#chan2) {11 http://news.google.com/news?ned=us&topic=h&output=rss}


it will check (poll) every x minutes for updated headlines, and if such exist, it will announce them on channel

or only replace privmsg with amsg code?

this is not a mIRC script, so you can't use /amsg

and it's designed to serve each channel with a different feed; if you want the same feed on all channels, then configure all channels with the same feed, although this doesn't make much sense

of course, that effect can be achieved via replacing the single output line with a loop by [channels], which I wouldn't recommend, the bot might flood itself out of irc if there are too many announcements

if the server allows multi targeting you could use:
puthelp "PRIVMSG [join [channels] ,] :text"
to emulate amsg Very Happy

theoretically, yes

practically, no - unless you parse 005 ISUPPORT on connect for TARGETS (not to mention those are in different format for several major ircds); eggdrop by itself doesn't support 005 as mIRC does - one of its flaws
