bnbot is a simple program which will allow communication through the bot protocol of a
Battle.net server from the command line. Input from stdin is sent to the server and
output from the server is send to stdout. The interface is so simple that
could be used. The only complicating factor is that a control-C character must be sent
to the server before any other input.
It is hoped that this program can be used with a scripting language like
to make creation of chat bots for Unix easier. To date, I dont know of anyone doing
this. This program may also be used to test bot login permissions for accounts.
If no servername is specified, localhost is assumed. If no serverport is
specified, 6112 is assumed.
