A very simple chat addon with the following features:
- Remove the need to hold down the ALT key in order to navigate the edit box with the arrow keys
- Automatic enabling of the chat log
This addon's primary purpose is to be as simple as possible, while disabling the annoying requirement to hold down ALT while editing your chat messages. There's a million very, very good heavy weight chat addons out there (Prat & similar) for those that want more.
One feature I am considering though, is tidying up the channel and player name part of chat messages, so that:
[2. Trade] [Foo]: Buying boost in Dead Mines paying 26 copper!
would become something like:
 Foo: Buying boost in Dead Mines paying 26 copper!
This would however introduce a step where each line that goes to the chat window has to be parsed and modified. I may simply decide that the feature is not worth it (it is honestly a bit more processing than I want the addon to do). Comments on the topic are welcome.
* Changing character encoding of source files (UTF-8 DOS)
* Removed timestamps, as this feature is part of Blizzard UI.
