Dunno

Purpose

The Dunno module is used to spice up the reply when given an invalid command with random ‘I dunno’-like responses. If you want something spicier than ‘<x> is not a valid command’-like responses, use this plugin. Like Success does for the ‘The operation succeeded.’ reply.

Usage

This plugin was written initially to work with MoobotFactoids, the two of them to provide a similar-to-moobot-and-blootbot interface for factoids. Basically, it replaces the standard ‘Error: <x> is not a valid command.’ messages with messages kept in a database, able to give more personable responses.

Commands

add [<channel>] <text>
Adds <text> to the dunno database for <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
change [<channel>] <id> <regexp>
Changes the dunno with id <id> according to the regular expression <regexp>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
get [<channel>] <id>
Gets the dunno with id <id> from the dunno database for <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
remove [<channel>] <id>
Removes the dunno with id <id> from the dunno database for <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
stats [<channel>]
Returns the number of dunnos in the database for <channel>. <channel> is only necessary if the message isn’t sent in the channel itself.
