Software - mICQ

About

mICQ is a very portable text-mode ICQ clone - it is known to compile under Linux, BSD, AIX, HPUX, Windows, AmigaOS and with restrictions BeOS. Originally written by Matthew D. Smith, a great part of mICQ has been rewritten by me, in particular the support for the new version 8 of the ICQ protocol that became necessary, the internationalization, the file transfer and some restructuring of the code are done by me.
