|use ascii characters to draw lines and boxes|
|-h, --help||display command line usage|
|show the program version info|
|-b, --basedir <directory>|
|specify another base directory; useful for having several IM identities under the same UNIX account|
|-B, --bind <hostname/ip>|
|tells centerim to use the specified IP address for outgoing connections|
|disable title changing in xterm or screen|

The following commands are used to put events to the outgoing queue from the command line. If centerim is already running theyre to be sent immediately, otherwise they will be sent as soon as you go on-line.
|-s, --send <event type>|
|This parameter specifies the type of event you want to send. Currently only "msg", "url" and "sms" are supported.|
|-p, --proto <protocol type>|
|This one specifies to which IM network the destination contact belongs. Can be "icq", "yahoo", "aim", "irc", "jab", "msn", "gg" or "lj".|
|-t, --to <nickname or UIN>|
|With this one you specify nickname or UIN of the destination contact. For icq its possible to specify 0 to send events to yourself. Only SMSes are known to be possible to be sent to oneself though.|
|-n, --number <phone number>|
Using this parameter you can send SMSes to any mobile numbers
through the ICQ network.
The message text is read from the standard input, so use pipes in shell to pass it. For example, you can say "hi" to me through the ICQ network with the following command:
$ echo "hi" | centerim -s msg -p icq -t 17502151
In case you want to send an URL, the URL itself and its description are separated with a newline character the following way:
$ echo -e "http://thekonst.net/\nMy modest homepage."
Please note, that all three parameters are required in order to queue an event.
Finally, a small example of sending SMSes:
$ echo "sms test" | centerim -s sms -n 1234567890
Its also possible to change your current status on a particular IM network with the following command line option.
|-S, --status <status letter>|
|The argument parameter is a letter which indicates which status is to be set: o (Online), _ (Offline), a (Away), d (Dont disturb), n (N/A), c (Occupied), f (Free for chat), i (Invisible)|
|-p or --proto <protocol name>|
Exactly the same like it was described for the previous command.
$ centerim -S _ -p icq
This will set the icq status to offline. In other words, itll be disconnected immediately.
$ centerim -S a -p yahoo
And this command will switch your yahoo status to away.
