egilh project #2: Unix System V Chat

When: late 80s

What: IRC like multi user chat. The “GUI” was pretty similar as well. A lot more secure though as you could only send messages.

Lessons learned:

  • Curses :-)
  • X Windows moves the input focus with the mouse so don't put the coffee cup too close to the mouse
  • Scket handling under *nix
