i have been given a copy of a specially written eggdrop bot (for irc) it has some extra modules and scripts in it which have been specially written for unix - to run on a unix shell. i need to be able to run this eggdrop bot on windows 2000 particularly, or run on some type of virtual unix environment that can run this eggdrop bot.
i do not really know anything about Unix or Linux and as there is SO MUCH to learn I really don't know where to start so please try to make this as simple as possible when it comes to the unix side of things. i know there is a dos version of the eggdrop bot, but dont think i can just merge the two. i have compared the two and with the unix one all the modules are .so files and in the dos version they are all DLLs plus there is numerous other differences like lots of files with no extensions etc...
so, can i run this under windows? what do i need to do to be able to do? can it be converted to run under the dos version of the eggdrop bot?
please assist as much as possible!
