A. The dynamic data bank
UserGuide Bot Usage Manual
Last Update: February, 2008
Hello, Undernet users! My name is UserGuide, and some people say that I am the sexiest and the smartest bot around this IRC network. ;o). I have a lot of information stored in my databases. Yes! I have two data banks: a dynamic one and a static one. Now, let me explain how you folks can benefit from the stuff I have stored inside.
This data bank is designed in such way that it can be updated in a heartbeat. I can delete, modify and add the topics in here 24 hours a day. So, if you have any pertinent suggestion to make or if you spot a broken link or typo, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do what it takes to please you as fast as botly possible.
Now, how can you access this data bank? It's quite simple. There are only two commands you need to know in order to be able to surf it without problems. The first command to use is:
/msg UserGuide UserGuide topics
I will show you a list of the existing topics. If you see a TOPIC that interests you and want to expand it, just use the second command:
/msg UserGuide UserGuide TOPIC
Here's an example. If you want to know more about IRC server errors, just type:
/msg UserGuide UserGuide server error
B. The static data bank
In this data bank I have stored topics that are not likely to change soon. This database is a bit more difficult to update as it is built on a well-defined structure and order and is not as flexible as the dynamic one I have mentioned above.
However, any suggestions are more than welcome, so feel free to email me at email@example.com anytime you have one. I'll see what I can do.
Using this data bank is as simple as using the dynamic one. All you need are two commands. The first command to use is:
/msg UserGuide genhelp
I will give you a list with the existing topics. These topics are numbered from 1 to 34. If you are interested in a topic just input the second command:
/msg UserGuide NUMBER
In this case, NUMBER is the numeric character that precedes the topic. For example, if you want to know more about worms, viruses, exploits and trojans, just type:
/msg UserGuide 31
To make things easier for you, considering that this data bank is the static one, I will give you the list of the topics obtained when using the genhelp command. Here they are:
1. What is IRC?
2. What is an IP address and how can I find the IP of someone?
