Did you want something fancier than exit 0;?

    exit 0 doesn't send a quit message, and I get the error: (in cleanup) Can't call method "post" on an undefined value at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/Bot/BasicBot.pm line 1500 during global destruction. I'm looking for a way to shut it down cleanly.

      I thought you said that it quit IRC correctly. Is that not the case, or did you replace the shutdown call with the exit?

        If I do an exit 0 after calling shutdown() it doesn't send the quit message to IRC and just exits the script right away.
