Instructions for Using: Tutorial
Color Text Terminal (CTT) is a PIL script for use with PIRCH 0.90a. An
easy to use GUI interface, relieves you of having to type the monotonous
color and attribute codes. As you enter a line of text, you can change
to different foreground and background colors, as well as change the
attributes of the text.
Instructions for using PIL Scripts
While the following instructions are going to help you use Cterm, they are pretty typical for any PIL installation.
- The PIL goes into a [pil_name] alias
- You need to create a pil_name alias
that invokes the PIL that reads either /runscript [pil_name] start or
/runscript [pil_name] create.
On with the show.......
The cterm.zip file includes cterm.bmp (the colors in the cterm window),
cterm.txt (help file), as well as the cterm.pil itself.
That's it. You have successfully installed the cterm PIL. To use it, simply type /cterm in the message
input area of any IRC chat window which will bring up the Color
Text Terminal window. Once it is up, you can type your message
into it and add color(s) and/or ASCII art at will. You still have the
option of using the standard message input area of a
channel/private chat window as well for added convenience.
- Please unzip to your PIRCH directory, open the cterm.pil with Notepad, and copy
all the text to the Clipboard.
- Now launch PIRCH and connect with
your desired profile (it is not necessary to actually connect to an
IRC server, though). If you don't know what a profile is, that's ok.
Most PIRCH users only use the default profile.
- Once logged in to PIRCH you will add two new Aliases. So click the Aliases button
at the top to open it for editing. Now click the sheet of paper icon
with the + by it. The first one to be added is called [cterm].
Make sure you use the  brackets. The brackets identify it as a
- Once added, click on it in the left pane to highlight it, then
click on the right pane, and paste (ctrl + v) the contents of the
- The PIL is now installed but we want to be able to
access it quickly so now create another new alias and call it
- Highlight the new cterm alias in the left pane and in the
right pane type /runscript [cterm] start.
- The final steps are to save the alias file (that's the big check mark in the upper left) and
close the alias window.
Thanks Sofaspud for the tips!
