How do I use modules?
« on: February 20, 2011, 10:21:33 PM »

I noticed some modules aren't the .so file format, therefore, they can't be used directly. How can I compile them? I do have Visual Studio 2010 but when I compile it comes out as a .dll and I don't know where to go from there.

Depends on the operating system, .so is *nix and you compile them on the shell, Windows you compile on windows resulting in .dll. There is plenty of documentation I suggest reviewing it.

Yes, I understand this. I have linux in my VMWare. I'm wondering what to do with these .dll's

Nothing. .dll is only for windows, you need .c for *nix to compile them to .so

Then where do I put the .dll's?

Nowhere, .dll is windows ONLY, maybe you should really take the time and reread my last post

Hold on, I don't understand you. Currently I am using Windows. I have .dll files to use. Just tell me what directory I put them so that OperServ can load them.

It's you that needs to hold on. You're so confused you don't even know what you are asking. You said you had Linux in a VM, if you are running Anope there, then you don't use the .dll's. If you are running Anope on windows, then there is no point in mentioning the Linux vm. They are 2 completely separate OS's.

Linux: Read docs/MODULES
Windows: Read http://wiki.anope.org/index.php/Windows:Modules

Lastly, it does you no good to "just tell you" where to put them. You learn nothing from that. Stop being lazy and read the documentation or you can just put Anope and your modules in the recycle bin.

If only this forum had a reputation system I'd be +repping that.

If I'm lazy, how come I'm a C Programmer and worked a TON on this: http://powdertoy.co.uk/ ?
Don't accuse me.
Next off, is there a guide to program your own?

All 3 of those, especially when combined and taking into consideration that you were told 3 times .dll's are windows only and .so's are linux only, warrant being accused of laziness.. I'd even say you didn't even bother to properly read the answer even though it was only one post up every single time.
Then again, a lot of the people asking for support here, and especially on IRC are lazy and skipped the documentation step.. the difference being most don't pretend to have read it.

programmers are especially lazy, I being one have no problem admitting that..
For all I care you could be writing windows 8 on your own overnight, if you don't read the docs I write for me 200 line app, I will still call you lazy
That said, I would be much more concerned with the fact that you claim to be a C programmer yet do not seem to realize a very basic difference between compiling C code for *nix and windows: the first generally using .so's and the second .dll's...

As for a guide to write modules, there is a wee bit of documentation regarding using the anope API on the wiki ( http://wiki.anope.org/index.php/Tutorials ) though that just covers the very basics. For more detailed stuff there s the doxy ( http://anope.org/doxy/ ) but the best way to get familiar with the API is probably looking at the existing modules, both core and 3rd party.. it s all pretty straightforward. :)

1> programmers are lazy. Believe me, I know several.
2> you can't be all that good of a coder if you are confused about where to put .dlls on Linux.
3> "just tell me" is simply saying. "I'd rather you solve the problem for me so i don't have to read".
4> YOU are the one that wants the answers, I already have the answers .. why? because I can read.
5> There is a module guide on the wiki. I suggest you read that too.

I didn't need rage. But thank you. I figured it out.
By the way, what part of the code tells the *Serv in question where to list it (e.g. when you type /msg ChanServ help)?

There is no rage there.

How to hook into help is covered in "The Command" section of both 1.8 and 1.9 module howto's
