The (Easy) Road to XBot
The BotBot is a new web service here that can
actually write a Palace
"Cyborg.ipt" file for you giving anyone
a simple way to harness the power of Palace scripting, without
not have to understand the Palace's "iptscrae"
scripting language to use the BotBot.
Just pick and click on the script features you want. No
worrying about variable and function scopes, no hassling with
which-piece-goes-where, or the mysterious vagaries of RPN
notation. To heck with all that. Just fill out the automated
form on the next
page and let the BotBot do the rest.
The form has lots of checkboxes for a wide variety of Cyborg
features just click on the ones you want to try. It also lets
you select customized login strings, has a flashy auto-reply
"finger" script, and more.
You can select whole suites of functions, if they appear
in the list as part of a group just click of the group's
checkbox, and all the groups' members will come along for
Once you've made your selections press "Build
Cyborg" the new cyborg script will appear on your
screen. Select "Save As..." and save the cyborg
That's all there is to it, to making a complete,
custom-made brand new high-quality Cyborg!
Plus, On-Line Help
Besides the script features you personally select (and the
automatic "finger" script),
every cyborg made by BotBot also has two
tailor-made on-line documentation functions,
to help you handle your bot. Just type these one-word commands
while in the Palace to get help:
- Prints information about your cyborg's current state.
- (also know as
Prints online help on all your personal bot's commands (optional).
