pcw - popup chat window
=======================
pcw uses inotify to monitor a directory tree (created by ii) and open terminals
running cw with the in and out files for each channel.

cw uses inotify to monitor a file and write changes to stdout as they happen,
and sends text written on stdin to another file. It's meant for use with pcw
and ii, but may come in handy elsewhere.

By default pcw depends on srw. It's not strictly needed but is used to wrap cw
for better line editing on input.

Installation
------------
Edit config.mk to match your local setup. pcw is installed into
/usr/local by default.

Afterwards enter the following command to build and install cw 
(if necessary as root):

    $ make clean install

Running pcw
-----------
NOTE: for ii to  work with pcw you must apply the ii-1.4-autojoin.diff patch
Simply invoke the 'pcw' command with the required arguments.
