Is there any user documentation for the CenterICQ program on the 3rd
Party CD?

Make sure you have man-db installed and run "man centericq".


Found it. Thanks.

There is also a readme file that is much more detailed on the web page
at http://centericq.de/docs

Is anyone using CenterICQ?
Yep.
I like it a lot, if only I can get it to stop crapping out on me.

It's really great, it crashes ALOT on qnx though, with no apparent
reason, when messaging certain people on your list. (Avoid sending to
those, and it works great though)
Friend claims it works like a charm on linux though.

It's poorly coded. Never checks for NULL values and passes NULLs into
C library functions - which isn't allowed. However, like on Windows,
GNU libc jumps through hoops to make bad programers look good. Not a
policy I have ever been a fan of - I like knowing when I am being
stupid. :)

The ICQ part work well. But I can't send ANY messages to anyone on Yahoo.
