tic 1.0 / Term::Shelly 0.2
Posted Sun, 06 Jun 2004
Features of tic:
- Basic functionality: sending messages, receiving them, checking info, setting away, seeing who's online, etc.
- Aliases can be created on demand to do whatever you want. You can cascade aliases aswell, meaning you can have one alias call another.
- Logging is supported, logs go to
- Persistent settings can be put in
~/.ticrc. See below for more info on this.
- Tab completion of all commands, aswell as completion of screennames for certain commands (like /msg)
- A shortcut for replying to whoever messaged you most recently - typing ; at the beginning of the line will auto fill in "/msg [whoever]" for you.
You'll need 3 perl modules:
Term::ReadKey, and a module I wrote,
Term::Shelly. The first two you can get from cpan. However, Term::Shelly hasn't been uploaded yet (I'm lazy) so you'll have to download it from me:
The basic syntax is:
key = value
Comments are prefixed with #, and whitespace between the key, =, and value. The following settings are available:
- screenname = someusername
- password = yourpassword
- port = 8080
- log = all|off
- timestamp = on|off
