Perk - Python Internet Klient:

This is release 0.1 of Perk, an IRC/mud client (with planned support for AIM
and ICQ) written in Python. Perk's biggest feature, of course, is it's
scripting language (i.e. Python, an extremely intuitive object-oriented
language that looks just like executable pseudocode). Perk also features
multiple connections using different protocols; for instance you can have an
IRC connection, a mud connection, and (eventually) ICQ running at the same
time, from the same program, using the same interface.
This version is the first to use Tk for its interface. Unfortunately this
broke the curses code used in the first release; I plan to merge it back in
in a later version.


Installation
You must have Python 1.5.2 installed beforehand. (It may work with earlier
versions, but this is currently untested and unsupported.) See the Python
homepage to get a copy. Then do

        # gunzip perk.tar.gz
        # tar -xf perk.tar

Or just tar -xzf perk.tar.gz if you have Gnu tar.
If you're running Windows, you should be able to use WinZip or something
similar to uncompress the file.


Downloads
Version 0.1 (gzipped tarball, 18K)
Version 0.0000001 (first release, with curses interface; gzipped tarball,
8K)
