how to use botmonk.py :
python botmonk.py --host relearn "#the_name_of_the_irc_channel_you_want_monk_to_log" the_name_you_chose_for_your_monk_bot
botmonk.py copies the time, usernames, and messages of the users of a specific irc channel as long as it's running. it creates a directory to put the log into (it's called bible for the moment but you can modify it, just look between the lines 29 and 32). if you launch several times the bot on the same irc channel, it will append the discussions to the same file. you can then push your file to the git repository.
