Let it be known that I looked for the wiki.beplacid.net page today and it no longer exists. It is now one of those stupid sites with bullcrap links on them.
Does anyone else have a valid list of info on the protocol?
In a way it is a good thing that that page disappeared, as it was hopelessly outdated.
If I need to know about a protocol, I tend to look in the client source code
(there at least, I know I have an implementation that works).
Also (IF I understood the license correctly), it might be possible to re-use parts of the client code in your bot (but check this to be sure). Using at least 'client_serv.h' will save you a lot of typing
