Why did they kill irssi?

Recommended Posts

In MDV 2007, irssi no longer supports perl scripts. There is no /script command and none of my scripts in ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun get loaded. I had to install from the tarball on irssi.org. Why kill this?

I just discovered that I can do:

 

/load perl

 

(I think that is the right module name)

and I get my scripts back, but I still have one script that uses Irssi::IRC that doesn't work (It can't load the module because of an 'undefined symbol').

 

so, anyway, why doesn't the perl module get loaded automagically, like it used to?

It should be since MCC is written in Perl\GTK.
