AIM and MSN Bots in C++
Has anyone seen bots on the AIM or MSN Messagers? some names of the bots are SmarterChild, Banxage, and RingMessenger. Most of these are built in Perl using the Net::AIM and Net::Google modules. I was wondering if it was possable to make one in C++. Now, i am far from skilled enough to do this, but maybe other people here are willing to try the idea. www.wiredbots.com teaches you how to make them in Perl, and even has a few commands and handlers on their website for download. I was just wondering if it can be done. If not, i'll stop dreaming now...
No. It cannot be done. It is utterly impossible to do that in C++. It doesn't matter how good you are. You will never succeed. Is it not obvious that you have absolutely no chance whatsoever to rewrite programs written in Perl, whose intepreter was written in C/C++ (I think), into C++? I can't believe you would even consider it.
Smarterchild was written in C
Sure, you can use another language! All you need to do is connect to the server and handle incoming packets accordingly.
I dont know how to do this in C/C++ though... anyone?
