PerlMonks ChatterBox Client


There are two executable programs, pm-cb and pm-cb-g. The former doesn't implement a full chat client (you can't use it to post to the ChatterBox) and is no longer supported. The latter is a graphical client to PerlMonks' ChatterBox written in Perl and Tk.

Pull requests welcome!


Install required modules using

cpanm --installdeps .

If your perl has been compiled with thread support:

perl -MConfig -E 'say "Threads supported" if $Config{useithreads}'

you can simply start the program with

perl pm-cb-g

If threads are not supported, either compile a new perl with threads enabled, e.g.

perlbrew install perl-5.30.0 --as=5.30.0-threads -Dusethreads
perlbrew use 5.30.0-threads

or run the program using MCE::Hobo with

perl pm-cb-g --mce_hobo

or with MCE::Child

perl pm-cb-g --mce_child
