Ok, I'm building a chat client and I want it to be able to connect to the yahoo chat server with a given id, and do the same things that a messenge does. How do I go about it? Can anybody give me the steps to go about with this? 1. How do I connect? 2. After the connection, how do I authenticate? 3. How do I get the friend list etc.? 4. How do I allow people to contact me using my yahoo id? 5. How do I contact people using their yahoo id?
I'm doing this as a project to show myself that I've still got some stuff left- the last resort before dying of boredom.
