Bot::Training(3) Plain text training material for bots like Hailo and AI::MegaHAL


use Bot::Training;
use File::Slurp qw< slurp >;
my $bt = Bot::Training->new;
# Plugins I know about. Install Task::Bot::Training for more:
my @plugins = $bt->plugins
# Get the plugin object of a .trn file (which is just a plain text
# file). These all work just as well:
my $hal = $bt->file('megahal');
my $hal = $bt->file('MegaHAL');
my $hal = $bt->file('Bot::Training::MegaHAL');
# Get all lines in the file with File::Slurp:
my @test = split /\n/, slurp($hal->file);


Markov bots like Hailo and AI::MegaHAL are fun. But to get them working you either need to train them on existing training material or make your own.

This module provides a pluggable way to install already existing training files via the CPAN. It also comes with a command-line interface called "bot-training".
