|-h||Display a list of command-line options.|
|-n||Dont background. Normally, Eggdrop will move itself into the background when you start it up, meaning youll get another shell prompt, and you can do other things while the bot is running. With -n, you wont return to the shell prompt until the bot exits (which wont normally happen until its killed). By default, -n will send all log entries to the console.|
|-nt||Dont background, use terminal. This is just like -n, except that instead of seeing log entries, your console will simulate a DCC chat with the bot.|
|-nc||Dont background, show channel info. This is just like -n, except that instead of seeing log entries, every 10 seconds your screen will clear and you will see the current channel status, sort of like "top".|
|-m||Create userfile. If you dont have a userfile, this will make Eggdrop create one and give owner status to the first person that introduces himself or herself to it. Youll need to do this when you first set up your bot.|
|-v||Show version info, then quit.|
SIGCHLD This signal is ignored by Eggdrop and can be used to determine whether its running or not. SIGTERM By default Eggdrop will save its user and channel file and die. A script can override the default handler by registering with the EVNT bind and returning 1. SIGHUP By default Eggdrop will rehash (reload its config file). A script can override the default handler by registering with the EVNT bind and returning 1. SIGQUIT By default Eggdrop will restart. A script can override the default handler by registering with the EVNT bind and returning 1.
EGG_LANG This variable can be set to the language in which you want Eggdrop to speak
to you. It defaults to English, but German, French, Finnish, and Danish are supported, too.
EGG_LANGDIR Specifies the directory where all your language files are stored. The default is ./language.
tclsh(1), irc(1), ircII(1), ircd(8)
There is extensive online documentation. Once you get the bot running, open a DCC chat with it, and type: .help
In addition, the files in the doc/ directory provide detailed information about how Eggdrop works and how to use it.
