|If a KVIrc session is already running, execute the <commands> in that session, otherwise start up normally (do not execute). <commands> must be a single shell token. You can eventually use this switch more than once.|
|-m||If a KVIrc session is already running, show an informational popup dialog instead of writing to the console. This is useful when starting KVIrc from a graphical taskbar button.|

An url in the following form:
For each url on the commandline create a new irc-context and attempt to connect to <server> on the specified <port>. The optional <channel> is joined just after the connection has been estabilished.
KVIRC_LANG Language setting. If not set KVIrc will check for $LANG LANG Language setting. If not set (or set to EN,POSIX or C) KVIrc will use the default language (english).
$PREFIX/share/kvirc/VERSION/* Directory with the global KVIrc settings, modules etc...
$HOME/.kvirc.rc . This is the first file that KVIrc looks for. If the -c commandline option is specified , the file passed as the option parameter is used instead of this one. If the file is found , KVIrc reads the first non-empty line and treats it as the path to the KVIrc Local directory. If the file can not be found or the KVIrc Local directory is not existing , KVIrc enters the setup mode and allows selecting a new KVIrc Local directory.
KVIrc Local directory/* Directory with the local (per user) KVIrc settings. Similar to the global one.
