I was originally using sic on a low-volume chat room at work, but I did
eventually encounter that issue when I attempted to use it in larger
room leading this to be filed: .
I'm considering making a sic fork called "nssic" or "not so simple irc
client" and integrating libreadline or libedit. I'm not particularly
fond of GPL, so I would prefer to use libedit if possible, but I haven't
reviewed enough of the libedit code to see how much work it would be
whereas I already know how to achieve what I want using the libreadline
API. The srw program posted to this thread looks interesting hackish or
not, and I'm going to try it out in a bit.
