/msg

This is the command you use in the Chatterbox to send a private message to another monk. The full form is

/msg RecipientName Text of message...
You can enter such a command in any text box where, if you typed any other text, it would go to the public Chatterbox.

Note that this command is parsed on the first and second whitespace. This can cause a problem if the RecipientName contains any spaces. To get around this, you can enclose the recipient monk's name in square brackets. This syntax should be familiar, because it's how you create a link to a monk's homenode. Example:

/msg [Mr. Muskrat] Check out that new obfu!
Further info is available in Using the Chatterbox: Private Messaging.

Also see the Message Outbox.

Chatterbox?
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
