pcw - popup chat windows
========================
pcw uses inotify to monitor a directory tree (created by ii[1]) 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[2]. 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.

Edit pcw_win.sh to customize what action is taken when new channels are joined.

It is recommended to use ii-emg[3] until new patches are created or certain
changes can be merged into ii.

There are also a number of extras in the extras/ directory that are not
installed by default.

Afterwards enter the following commands to build and install pcw
(if necessary as root):

    $ make
    # make install

Running pcw
-----------
Simply invoke the 'pcw' command with the required arguments.
