    Hello kids,

    I've scrambled this client for all ( mostly for myself ) the linux users out there. Check it out, see if you like it, report bugs, etc, etc... Installation is pretty simple, just follow these commands:

    if you don't have ncurses installed, install it.

    cd /path/to/cl-chat-prerelease.tar.gz

    tar xvf chat-prerelease.tar.gz

    cd CL_Chat

    open README.txt and follow it ( it's just one command ).

    and then just run it:

    ./clchat -u [username] -p [password]

    Have fun, Red.

    P. S. It still isn't finished. I will be posting it on a github when it's done.

    Good stuff! I'm pretty impressed somebody actually carried though with a coding project that's CL related lol.

    I don't have a computer running on linux at the moment, but the computers at my school do, so I'll definitely give it a spin when I'm there tomorrow.

    @halcy made something similar in the past, a little IRC server that wold toss all communication into a certain channel. It broke with the recent updates, so this is a welcome addition. Does it have any logging capabilities built in, or would I just pipe it into STDOUT?

    @someone Thank you

    @acostoss I forgot to supply a TODO list ( it's within the code ) but some features like logging and tab completing are under work. It basically logs everything on the screen ( right corner ) so you can look at a history from the moment you logged in. Also i think it should be able to log to file or something.

    @Trev It depends on ncurses and Poco c++ api. Umm you can use websocket implementation since it has everything you would need ( Send and Recv methods ). When i finish it fully and i "should" be done by tonight i will post code and binaries on github so you can see the code to yourself. Also it's written with c++.

    @Gargron Me too! Also, how does the server handle the quoting? Is there any other characters that should be handle specially like quots?

    Very awesome, I approve. I don't know how to install it but I will mess around with it tonight. If you are going to update it I will make sure to subscribe to the thread so I can see any new releases.

    @Gargron I don't believe in half-assing anything so I'd probably want to you know flesh it out and test it for edge cases and authentication before I posted it.

    Hello kids, I'm sorry for coming late but here it is, final version:

    CLCHAT

    and the screenshot: It looks better

    It features ( besides the obvious ) tab name/command autocomplete, hiding users and outputting full history log.

    Have fun!
