Caecilian is a program designed to chat in WormNET. It is written in Java and requires the latest Java Runtime Environment to run.

You don't need to install Caecilian, it runs from any directory.

Note that it creates a file called "config.txt" upon the first start. Don't have a file called like this in the same directory. It will be overwritten.

Caecilian is open source, but the creator decided not to included the sources in the download at the moment. If you like to have those, please send evilworm2 a message.


  • Ignore list
  • Send private messages
  • Choose rank
  • Choose flag (not all supported yet)
  • Export chat to XHTML 1.0 Strict
  • Four different skins
  • Customizable font and colors
  • Localized (English and German at the moment)


Q: Why XHTML Strict? It looks boring.

A: XHTML Strict seperates content from design. You are not allowed to use any design components inside the xhtml file.

The design of XHTML documents is done with style sheets. You can easily write an own style sheet and customize the look of the exported chat.

Q: How to do?

A: Download a sample style sheet here: style.css.

Assuming you saved the stylesheet in the same folder as the log file, you need to add the following line to the header of the html file:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" />

Try out your own, it's fun to make one. :)

The sample CSS style sheet looks like this:

Future plans

There is no indication that the program is still being worked on.

However, support for the following features is still 'planned':

  • Renaming feature
  • /xxx text (eg /me Hi!)
Personal tools
