statusbar module

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I bumped into a full explanation of escape codes in xterms and it occurred to me that I could set the title bar of the xterm session and thus have a non-moving status bar of sorts in the textui. I spent 5 minutes slapping together a module that sets the title bar for the textui (if you're using an xterm) and the tkui with name/value pairs that you set using the #setstatus command.

Link to said module is here.

Incidentally, the ability to whip together additional functionality like this in such a short period of time is what makes Lyntin such a powerful mud client.
