Bot::Training - 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".
