IPChat is a simple and small ncurses-based chat program, written in
C, where you find your contacts using their IP addresses or hostnames
(so you can use it with dyn-dns things).

Even though it's meant to be a very lightweight program, it has nice
features like colors, terminal window resizing, line editing and
recalling of previously written lines.

It mantains a persistent contact list, and it works like an "instant
messenger" program in the sense that when a contact connects, you
immediatly see that she/he is connected (and she/he sees you).

You have a "window" for every connected contact (like ircII or BitchX
windows). On the right of the terminal, you see a list of all
contacts (connected or not). That's where you see which contacs are
connected, which contacts said something while you're not in their
windows, etc. You add contacts with the "/add" command. Other
commands exist to modify and remove contacts.
