Squeamish: An AOL Instant Messenger Client

July 29, 2001


Squeamish is an AOL Instant Messaneger Clone in Squeak written by Dustin Holmes and Ryan Champney as a extra credit project. Squeamish uses the open AIM/TOC server to gain access to AOL Instant Messenger commands. Any user on any client can be contacted. Although all basic IMing and BuddyList features are supported Squeamish is still a work in progress.
