1 libPurple core-answerscripts plugin
2 Framework for hooking scripts to received messages for various libpurple clients
3
4 This simple plugin just passes every single message received by any libPurple-based client (pidgin,finch) to sript(s) in user's home directory... So you can add various hooks to your pidgin or finch without need of writing and compiling own C plugin or messing with buggy perl plugin and restarting client after each change in plugin.

6 There are already few sample (answer)scripts in purple directory, so you can check how easy it is to write some script for pidgin or finch...

13 To build and install :
14 You can compile the plugin using
15 $ make
16 and install it with
17 $ make install
18 This will install it in ~/.purple/plugins so that only the user who install it can use it.
19 $ make user
20 Install main script and sample answerscripts to ~/.purple/answerscripts.d/
21
22 To install it for everybody on your computer,
23 $ make
24 $ su
25 # make install PREFIX="/path/to/pidgin" (this command as root user)
26 generally /path/to/pidgin is /usr or /usr/local. If you don't know the path then you can find out using
27 $ whereis pidgin
28 and look for the part before "/lib/pidgin".
