Cowbell is an IRC Bot. This means it can connect to IRC and provide services to other users of IRC. Amongst the services Cowbell comes with by default are:
· Worldwide weather forecast capability
· Web search (provides the first result for given keywords)
· Alarm clock (timed reminders)
· Ping and nslookup services
· Dictionary and definition services.
· Channel service (account management, op/deop, kick/ban, etc)
All functionality in Cowbell is implemented with plugins, so there's no limit to the amount of features and services Cowbell can have.
