Question: Best way to go about creating a specific plugin

Hey everyone, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but I was wondering if anyone had any advice on the best way to go about creating a plugin which would post messages directly to a MUC at regular intervals each day.

I was thinking that perhaps I could just write a batch file that would run my code every day at the required times, but I need the plugin to extract information from other servers (whether they are operating at a steady pace or not) and post the results to an MUC conference every day. Any suggestions or help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi bcone

If you are thinking of creating a MUC log viewer plugin, someone has already started the process in sourceforge. Look at this thread

It would be really nice if you can contribute to that project.

Here is the plugin developer guide from WildFire
