Description: A bare-to-the-bones IRC client
LnIRC 1.0.6 beta Documentation
If this software messes up your computer, don't blame me.
Unzip and run LnIRC.
First, you should set up your preferred nick, your real name and
the server hostname and port. Type the following commands in the
/setserver (don't add the port here!)
These next three settings might not have to be set, at least the server
I'm usually on doesn't complain about it.
To set the charset encoding used when sending/receiving data, type
ISO<1-10>, MAC_ROMAN, SJIS, EUC, JIS, MS_WINDOWS, UNICODE,
KOI8R, MS_WINDOWS_1251, MS_DOS_866.
If you are having trouble with one of these settings, contact me.
To view your settings, type /settings
Now you are ready to /connect!
From the main window you can send anything to the server. Unless your
input is prefixed with a '/' any text entered will be sent directly to the
server. Some commands you might want to use are:
PRIVMSG : initiate conversation with someone
ISON <...> check if these nicks are online
WHOIS get some info on nick
QUIT : quit connection to server
For a complete listing of IRC commands, check out RFC1459.txt, which
can be found at www.internic.net.
These basic commands will be availiable through some sort of popupmenu
at a later time.
When you receive data from a channel or another user, a window is created.
Text typed in these windows will be sent to the appropriate destination, unless
prefixed with a '/', in which case the input is checked for known commands,
To chat with someone on a channel, double-click his/her nick to open a privmsg-
Feel free to send comments, questions and so on to firstname.lastname@example.org.
List of recognized commands:
/join #/j for short
/topic #only in channel
/mode #see RFC1459 for details
/clear #remove all text in textview
