microdc2 is a command-line based Direct Connect client that uses the GNU Readline library for user interaction. It was developed from ground up and does not depend on any other program. Despite the command-line user interface, it was designed to be user friendly and simple to use. It can work on headless host (under `screen`, for instance) ant thus, doesn't require you to run an expensive X11 session, as other clients do. microdc2 is currently in beta state - there may be many bugs not yet discovered. It also lacks some features that other clients support, such as file hashing, multiple hub connections, and hub list support. Direct Connect protocol is used for P2P file sharing. See it's description on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Direct_Connect_(file_sharing).
