Xavierbot is an OCaml IRC bot that we sometimes use on the Freenode
#ocaml channel for teaching OCaml to new users. I say “sometimes” because some channel users have objected to having a bot in the channel, to which I say they should send the
xavierbot, shut up command.
OCaml is of course the fantastic expressive/safe programming language which is the main reason why I’m very cynical in person about programming as a profession.
You’re still using C/C++/Perl/Python/Ruby/Java/…? Why have we not left the programming equivalent of the 1970s yet?
There’s a new version of Xavierbot here: http://people.redhat.com/~rjones/xavierbot/
