Twocan provides a chat server in the style of ewtoo.

Twocan is a chat server that supports libz compression for connections. It also has real terminal support using termcap/ncurses and is extremely easy to configure.

To get the code to compile you should just be able to go into the src/ dir and type ./unixmake and type site at the prompt and then press return at the next prompt.

When you boot the program for the first time it's configured to come up on a "random" port which it will display on the screen, you can change this (as well as most other things) by using the "configure" command as an admin after you logon.

To get a higher admin character you need to logon as the name "root" then type "su" twice (once to resident them and the second time to give them higher admin privs).

The name "Root" is the value of player_name_admin in the configure command (you'll probably want to change it).

To create a system room you'll need to grant a character the system room priv and then run the commands "room system_create" and "configure room_main" (the last to make the room the default main room ... although you'll also want to invite everyone into the room, or they won't be able to get in).

What's New in This Release:

The header wasn't being included because it used the same variable as the include header, doesn't really affect anything. Spelling mistake.
AUTHORS: Changed email address for richard sibley. Do ./pre_configure on the libs
Removed the bit about ignore not existing, because it does.
