IRCRC(1) IRCRC(1) NAME ircrc - internet relay chat client SYNOPSIS ircrc [ -p port ] [ -P server password ] [ -r realname ] [ -t target ] [ -n nick ] [ -T ] [ server ] DESCRIPTION Ircrc is an IRC client. Messages are sent from standard input and received from standard output. The default server is irc.freenode.net. The arguments bitlbee and oftc are expanded to im.bitlbee.org and irc.oftc.net, respectively. The options are: -p port Change the default port (6667). -P server password Specify a password for the remote server. -r realname Change the default name (<nil>). -t target Set and join the target channel. If multiple channels are specified, only the last one will be set as target. Messages are sent to target unless they are commands. -n nick Change the default nickname ($user). -T Use tls through tlssrv(8). Commands Ircrc commands begin with a slash. Unrecognized commands result in an error message and send nothing to the server. The commands are: /! cmd Send the output of the shell command cmd to the current target. /M MODE command. /N NOTICE command. /T TOPIC command. /W WHOIS command. IRCRC(1) IRCRC(1) /a AWAY command. /j JOIN command. /l LIST command. /m PRIVMSG command. /n NICK command. /p PART command. /q cmd Send the raw IRC command cmd to the server. /t target Set target. If target is more than one channel, any messages are sent to all of them. /u USERS command. /w WHO command. /x QUIT command. Control-D also sends this command. See RFC 1459 and RFC 2812 for detailed information about IRC commands. EXAMPLES Default usage: % ircrc Join irc.oftc.net as a different user: % ircrc -r glenda -n glenda irc.oftc.net Join two channels on login: % ircrc -t '#cat-v,#plan9' SOURCE /rc/bin/ircrc SEE ALSO http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1459 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2812 BUGS Some fonts do not support the nickname delimiters.
