The screen can be split up to display multiple windows at the same time.[2] WeeChat also provides incremental text search in buffers, aspell support for spell checking, a smart hotlist, scripting support for many languages (Perl, Python, Ruby, Lua, Tcl), FIFO pipes for remote control and support for multiple charsets.[3]
