Known Problems

Things that are broken, but aren’t getting fixed anytime soon:

  • Non-working alarm(10) in Linux (calls to gethostbyaddr/name() have blocked for long periods when bind/named doesn’t resolve quickly, and the alarm does not interrupt it).

    Note: This should now work if you use the dns module.

  • High-bit characters are being filtered from channel names. This is a fault of the Tcl interpreter, and not Eggdrop. The Tcl interpreter filters the characters when it reads a file for interpreting. Update your Tcl to version 8.1 or higher.

  • Version 8.1 of Tcl doesn’t support unicode characters. If those characters are handled in a script as text, you run into errors. Eggdrop can’t handle these errors at the moment.
