Pidgin does have a log viewer, it's easy to bring up and if you've
enabled logging, you'll find chat logs (I recommend plain-text logging
as HTML just unnecessarily bloats the log file). I'm not sure it will be
real time, but um, what's the point in viewing chat logs in real time?
If you're adding to the log in an active discussion, the active chat
window could be described as a real time log viewer.

Hope this helps.
Yours In Christ,

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
