NAME

       xtalk - X Window System BSD compatible talk client, written in Python.

SYNOPSIS

       xtalk [user[@address[ tty]]

DESCRIPTION

       When  started, xtalk won't actually try to connect until you click on the "Connect" button
       in the program.  xtalk accepts addresses in the  same  format  as  the  regular  BSD  talk
       program.   From  in  the program you can enter the address in the "Address" entry.  At any
       point during a talk session, clicking on "Disconnect" disconnects the session.

       The format of a talk address is as follows.  To talk to a user on the same host, just  use
       "username"  as the address.  To talk to a user on another host, use "username@hostname" as
       the address.  If the user is logged in several times, you can specify which tty to  "page"
       them on by saying "username tty" or "username@hostname tty".

BUGS

       From  user point of view, it seems that his own text in the window is editable, whereas in
       fact it is not.
