You know nothing about how ICQ works or about the protocol but you still want to be a cool h4x0r and code your progs? Well now you can!
ICQ DEVELOPER TOOLKIT is one of the kind project that will make your coder dreams come true.

Basically it’s a DLL which has some functions that lets you connect to the ICQ Network, send messages, etc.

Only problem with it, if you can call it a problem, is that it’s unmanaged code which means that you can’t use it directly in C# for example (in C on the other hand you can, without any changes).

So I’ve made a small frontend for it which lets you use the dll in managed code: a class called ManagedKID.

Now you only have to create an instance of ManagedKID and use it’s functions. The ManagedKID isntance will automatically call the .dll functions.
(strange sentence, but hey … if you can code a bit you’ll understand what it does)

Example code of use (C#):

ManagedKID myKid = new ManagedKID();

Download the DLL from http://www.icqkid.com, where you can also see the ManagedKID code.



PS: To make it clear : I didn’t create ICQKID, so don’t ask me how to use it. I only created the ManagedKID class, to make things easier for ppl who want to use it in C#.
