initialisation and starting using bitchx key bindings triggers / scripting
initialisation and starting
for an easier start and basic initialisation, it's best to add some lines to your ~/.cshrc, ~/.bashrc, ~/.bash_profile or whatever file you use to make your basic settings for your shell. add those lines:IRCSERVER = "linz.irc.at vienna.irc.at ix.irc.at" IRCNAME = "Bla Fasel" IRCNICK = "BitchUser"
IRCSERVER defines a list of servers BitchX will connect to on startup and reconnect if one of teh servers is unreachable during a session.
IRCNAME describes what will be shown on a whois-request on your nick and
IRCNICK of course is teh nick that will be initialy used (if available). ok, so now start BitchX (with whatever options you think that might be usefull for you. i prefer "-A" to get rid of teh annoying ascii-art "splash-screen" on startup), and join any channel you like. in this case, i'll join #bitch_test, which is done via /join #bitch_test.
