This is a Common Lisp implementation of the XMPP RFCs.  Please
see for more information.


  * (require :cl-xmpp)

  * (defvar *connection* (xmpp:connect :hostname ""))
;; or xmpp:connect-tls if you loaded cl-xmpp-tls

;; note that for XMPP servers which do not have the same hostname
;; as the domain-part of the user's JID you will have to pass that
;; in.  eg for Google Talk:
;;  (defvar *connection* (xmpp:connect-tls :hostname ""
                                           :jid-domain-part ""))

  * (xmpp:auth *connection* "username" "password" "resource")
;; or pass :mechanism :sasl-plain, :digest-md5 or sasl-digest-md5
;; if you loaded cl-xmpp-sasl or cl-xmpp-tls.

;; send someone a message
  * (xmpp:message *connection* "username@hostname" "what's going on?")

;; then sit back and watch the messages roll in:
  * (xmpp:receive-stanza-loop *connection*)
<MESSAGE from=username@hostname to=me@myserver>
;; or use xmpp:receive-stanza if you're just wanting one stanza
;; (note it will still block until you have received a complete
;; stanza)

;; That's it.  Interrupt the loop to issue other commands, eg:
  * (xmpp:get-roster *connection*)

;; or any of the other ones you may find by looking through cl-xmpp.lisp
;; and package.lisp to see which ones are exported.

;; If you wish to handle the incoming messages or other objects simply
;; specify an xmpp:handle method for the objects you are interested in
;; or (defmethod xmpp:handle (connection object) ...)  to get them
;; all.  Or alternatively specify :dom-repr t to receive-stanza-loop
;; to get DOM-ish objects.

;; For example, if you wanted to create an annoying reply bot:

 * (defmethod xmpp:handle ((connection xmpp:connection) (message xmpp:message))
    (xmpp:message connection (xmpp:from message) 
        (format nil "reply to: ~a" (xmpp:message object))))
