damn is a command line tool for chatting on dAmn servers. Latest version is 0.1.41r11.
- Uses stdin and stdout, allowing it to be used in Unix pipes
- Support for non-chat.deviantart.com dAmnServers (eg. Crystal)
- Targets a unix/linux audience, but should work in Windows NT etc.
- Basic commands for sending messages to the server
- Is currently being recoded in C, which will provide a nice performance boost.
The linux and windows versions are the same program, but with slightly different packaging and documentation (i.e. a man page in the linux version, an html page in the windows one)
- Version 0.1.41r11
- Version 0.1.41r5
Once you're up and running, you have a few commands available to you to use. All commands are prefixed by a colon (:).
- :j #room
- Join #room, and sets the default room to #room
- :l #room
- Leave #room, and resets the default room to nothing
- :m #room message
- Sends a message to #room, and sets the default room to #room
- :r packet
- Sends a raw packet to the server ('\n will be translated to a newline character and \0 is automatically appended to the end.')
- If the default room is set (meaning you've used :j or :m), sends the message to the default room. Cannot begin with a colon.
