what's a bot? curious if there are any definitions out there.. han solo msg:443594 9:35 pm on Feb 22, 2001 (gmt 0) I'm only wondering because, according to some of the research and programming I'm trying to learn, I may qualify as an author of a "bot".
This to me is laughable, because what I've done isn't too sophisticated, or complex...and I thought that bots had to be something more along the lines of autonomous things, rather than user instigated software?

I couldn't give you a definition, but I would say in the looses sense an auto-submitter is a bot. han solo msg:443596 4:22 pm on Feb 23, 2001 (gmt 0)
thanks for the help...
sort of kicking around the idea of redoing my resume, and was considering adding "authored x bots" as part of it...
even though I'd be hard pressed to do the programming required, I am through the "learning perl book now, and on to "Programming Perl"
Must say, 2 very excellent books.
About the bots, though, I still haven't made it all the way through the stuff at botspot, but that is one incredible site.
