Freetalk is a console based Jabber client. It features a readline interface with completion of buddy names, commands, and even ordinary English words! Freetalk is extensible, configurable, and scriptable through a Guile interface.
GNU Freetalk is distributed under the GNU General Public License, version 3 or later --- see the file COPYING for details.
To start with you can use Freetalk by just running 'freetalk' and
/login to specify your Jabber account and password. To
avoid having to do this every time, you can put your account details
in a file called
~/.freetalk/freetalk.scm. Look at
to know how to do this.
There is comprehensive documentation in Info format in the doc/ directory, which you should be able to read by saying,
$ info freetalk
