YTalk is multi-user talk program, that is compatible with the older Unix talk clients and daemons. It lets you communicate interactively with other people on the internet.
When using YTalk, the screen is split into two or more regions or windows, one for each person with whom you are talking. Each key you type appears on your region, and on the screens of each other user in the conversation. Each key typed by another user appears in that user's region.
YTalk 3.1.1 features
* multiple simultaneous connections, compatible with Unix Talk as well as previous versions of YTalk.
* text-based or X11 interface, at your choice
* YTalk windows scroll, instead of wrapping around
* start shells inside YTalk, type commands and let your partners see them
* Ytalk is 8-bit clean, so you can type all those cool accented characters
* you can save any side of the current conversation, including yours
* you can define aliases for addresses of people to ring or for hostnames to ring them on.
* support for virtual hosts and multi-homed machines
* YTalk is very configurable
* lots of bugfixes, especially on Linux and Solaris
* even more bugfixes now
* Ytalk is Y2K clean; as far as I know it has always been, since all the date-processing it does is comparing Unix timestamps in seconds since 1 Jan 1970. This is silly, but I've been asked a couple times already about Ytalk's Y2K status...
