Perl Chat 0.1.1
Perl Chat is a project that consists of a client and a server, both written in perl.

The goal of this project is to create a chat server that can be used on smaller networks such as a college campus or a business network.

Both the client and the server are written in Perl, and the client uses the Tk module to generate its GUI.


First of all you need a working version of Perl. Preferably 5.6 but 5.005X should also work fine. For versions of Perl Chat < 0.1.0 you will need to compile Perl with Threads. (Keep in mind that Threads are still experimental) I designed this program with Perl 5.6.0 which can be found HERE.

You will need to read the installation instructions to compile it with Threads. I advise anyone who is doing this to install this new version of perl into /usr/local/ so as to not overwrite your old perl. Then by changing the first line of the script you can toggle between the different installs of perl.
