Minimalistic, line-based AIM client

'BSFlite' is a minimalistic, line-based AIM client. It is designed with simplicity and efficiency in mind and thus utilises as little RAM and CPU time as possible in order to be friendly to multiuser systems. It uses the OSCAR protocol to communicate with the AIM service. Instead of having a full screen console interface, BSFlite uses a command shell interface that lets you type without needlessly sifting through windows. It supports most standard AIM features, except chat rooms and block lists.
