Plugin Initialization

Plugin Initialization Sequence

1. The bot attempts to load the plugin with LoadLibrary/GetProcAddress (Win32) or dlopen/dlsym (Linux)

2. The bot calls RadioBotPlugin() in which your plugin should return a filled in PLUGIN_PUBLIC structure.

3. RadioBot then checks that the plugin_ver member matches it's own IRCBOT_PLUGIN_VERSION. If it doesn't match, it will refuse to load the plugin because it is not binary compatible.

4. It then checks if init is not NULL (it is acceptable to set init to NULL if you don't need an init function), and calls it if so. If init returns 0 the bot unloads the plugin. (the bot does not call quit() if init() returns 0)

5. Congratulations, the plugin is now loaded.
