linux default iconTkabber Publisher's description

A Free and Open Source client for the Jabber instant messaging system

Tkabber provides a Tcl/Tk interface to the Jabber instant messaging and presence service.

Tcl/Tk is a graphical scripting language that runs on the Unix, Windows, and Macintosh platforms. The choice of Tcl/Tk for a Jabber client is three-fold:

* it is portable: once you install a Tcl/Tk interpreter on your system, the Tkabber script "just runs" - without having to compile anything;
* it is customizable: Tkabber reads a configuration file when it starts that tells it the settings of various parameters; and,
* it is extensible: the configuration file is actually a Tcl script, so you can replace or augment entire portions of Tkabber (if you're so inclined).

Here are some key features of "Tkabber":


В· hashed passwords
