    // All configuration is optional
    new \Phergie\Irc\Plugin\React\CommandHelp\Plugin([

        // List of plugins that subscribe to command events
        // Used to return a list of available commands to users
        // All elements must implement \Phergie\Irc\Bot\React\PluginInterface
        'plugins' => [
            new Phergie\Irc\Plugin\React\TableFlip\Plugin()

        // Text to precede the list of available commands when providing it to
        // users
        'listText' => 'Available commands: ',



This plugin provides a "help" command that can be invoked with or without parameters.

If it is invoked without parameters, it will respond with a list of all available commands, which is obtained from the value of the 'plugins' configuration setting based on the command events to which those plugins subscribe.

If it is invoked with parameters, it will assume the first parameter to be a command name and emit an event for the plugin supporting that command to respond to.

For example, if the first parameter value is 'foo', the plugin will emit a '' event that the plugin supporting the "foo" command can subscribe to. This event's parameters will be an object implementing CommandEventInterface (the event originally received by the CommandHelp plugin) and an object implementing EventQueueInterface (which the receiving plugin can use to respond with information about its "foo" command to the user who invoked the "help" command).


To run the unit test suite:
