Realtime chat software? - Mac Networking

Hi, I've been looking for a piece of chatting software that shows other people's messages _as_ they are typed(Key-by-key), not just once they punch return, and that also records messages to plaintext files in the one-over-other manner shown below: A: Message B: Message A: Message B: Message I'm just going to be using this over a LAN, and I'd most prefer a Classic-compatible app. Thanks for any assistance.

    Default Realtime chat software?

    Hi, I've been looking for a piece of chatting software that shows other
    people's messages _as_ they are typed(Key-by-key), not just once they
    punch return, and that also records messages to plaintext files in the
    one-over-other manner shown below:

    A: Message
    B: Message
    A: Message
    B: Message

    I'm just going to be using this over a LAN, and I'd most prefer a
    Classic-compatible app.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    iChat doesn't do key by key. Also not a Classic app, but the CLI app 'talk'
    does just what you describe. It should already be installed with OS X.

    It does if you tell it to.

    Preferences -> Messages -> Send text as I type (Rendezvous only)
