in reply to Perl/Tk Chatterbox Client

Here's an update to [id://] resolution in the Tk client.

The client as posted at the head returns

    resolved name of id:// link
for each id:// link. This is not always wanted, as sometimes you'll be greeted with a Search page instead of the node in question when you click on such a link. Turns out that PerlMonks::Chat can be told to do the right thing!

At lines 280, 298, and 315 of the original code, we have:

    foreach ($p->getnewlines(1)) { push @chat_cache, $_; }

For each of these instances, change it to be:     foreach ($p->getnewlines(1,1)) { push @chat_cache, $_; }
This will tell PerlMonks::Chat to render id:// links as [id://xxxxxx|resolved name]

Here's the diff against the code at the head of this thread. Patches a file called "chatterbox" in the current dir, so hack as needed. :o)
