chat – simple chat client for hubfs|
chat [ –n nick ] [ –j channel ] [ chatsrv ] |
chat is a simple client script for using hubfs(4) as an irc–like
chat service. /srv/chat is the default target service file, which
must have been created by a previously started hubfs. |
The –n nick option sets user nickname, otherwise they will be prompted for one on connection. The –j channel option chooses a channel to connect to, otherwise the default /n/chat/chat channel will be targeted. The optional chatsrv parameter specifies a different file in /srv rather than the default /B /srv/chat
If invoked with no options the script will mount the hubfs at
/n/chat and prompt for a user nickname, then begin reading and
writing messages to /n/chat/chat in the manner of an irc session.
The following commands are available during use: /n nick change
user nickname. /j channel change the target of the
chat to the specified channel. /c list the available channels
within the server. /h print the help message and command list.
/q quit the chat.|

All chat logic is handled client side, so there is little protection
