I'm writing a really simple console chat client for a chat server I wrote. Basicly, what I need is a line at the bottom for user input and the rest for text coming from the server. I tried something with ncurses, but it was a bit too complex for now.
The client I have written this far dumps everything in stdout and that's inconvenient for many reasons. It gets the input from a separate thread.
I'm grateful for any suggestions and ideas.
