NAME

sic - text interface to the Internet Relay Chat system

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

sic [ -c confdir ] [ -i ip ] [ -l logdir ] [ -n ] [ -r script ] [ -v ]

DESCRIPTION

The sic program is a full screen, termcap based interface to the Internet Relay Chat. It can handle several concurrent connections, through the use of virtual windows.

OPTIONS

-c confdir This can be used to override the default directory in which the configuration files are. The default is $SICDIR.
-i ip This option instructs sic to use the given address as the local address. This is only useful for multi-homed hosts. The default is $SICIP.
-l directory This option can be used to override the default directory in which logfiles will be created. The default is $SICLOG.
-n Normally, on startup sic will automatically connect to the first server specified in the configuration. This option can be used to start sic without initiation any connection.
-r filename If a filename is specified, the client will read such file (within $SICDIR) and execute any command specified in it.
-v This will make sic print its version information.
