.TH PCW 1 pcw-VERSION
.SH NAME
pcw \- popup chat windows

.SH DESCRIPTION
.B 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.
By default pcw depends on srw to wrap cw for better line editing, but this can be changed by editing config.h before compiling.

.B 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.
