Irssi item_sendqueue module

A module for the Irssi IRC client that adds a statusbar item displaying the length of the command sendqueue for the current IRC server.

item_sendqueue assumes that you compiled Irssi using GLib version 2.0 or greater.

Compile and install like this, replacing /usr/local/src/irssi with the path to the Irssi source on your system:

export IRSSI=/usr/local/src/irssi
gcc item_sendqueue.c -Wall -g -o ~/.irssi/modules/ -shared -I$IRSSI -I$IRSSI/src -I$IRSSI/src/core -I$IRSSI/src/irc/core -I$IRSSI/src/fe-common/core -I$IRSSI/src/fe-text -DHAVE_CONFIG_H `pkg-config --cflags glib-2.0`

In Irssi then do:

/LOAD item_sendqueue

To make Irssi automatically load it on startup, add the above line to ~/.irssi/startup.

Use the /STATUSBAR command to add the sendqueue item to your statusbar, for example doing:

/STATUSBAR window ADD -after lag sendqueue

The integer setting sendqueue_min_show allows you to specify the mininum queue length to be reahed, before the sendqueue item shows in the statusbar.
