Hi there. I have been hacking my way through the POE::Component::IRC module with great success, until I tried to implement formatting in a privmsg. As I didn't realise I had to include IRC::Utils I ended up with silly error messages and had to ask in #perl. Possibly the following documentation could be updated to point out that you need to _include IRC::Util_ rather than just "Have a look at the constants in IRC::Utils <> if you would like to use formatting and color codes in your messages." I appreciate this down to my own ignorance rather than anything, but it seems from the chat room that I'm not the only one to do such a silly thing. Many thanks, Daniel Fligg

I added a code example to the documentation, showing how the constants are used. It'll be in the next release.
