Freehoo is a free console based messenger for Yahoo IM Service with
GNU Bash like tab completion / editing and GNU Emacs like extensibility.

3.5.3 released on [Jan 21 2009]. Pager port set to
5050. Thanks to Kendal Montgomery.
Well, I chose Freehoo as my favorite messenger client for the
console, because it has a fantastic readline interface, the tab
completion is context sensitive, and because of the great
extensions. Through the latter Freehoo provides the excellent
capability to act however you want.
