NAME

       viconf,  viklines,  vimotd  — safe editor for ircd-hybrid configuration
       files

SYNOPSIS

       viconf

DESCRIPTION

       viconf is a program that locks the ircd.conf file  in  /etc/ircd-hybrid
       for  editing  by  a  privileged  user,  to avoid corruption if the ircd
       wishes to write to it as well.

       viklines is simply viconf for ircd-hybrid’s  klines.conf  file.  vimotd
       edits the ircd.motd.

       The above commands are deprecated because there is no more valid reason
       to have to lock ircd.conf or klines.conf for writing,  since  the  ircd
       does not write to these until it restarts or shuts down.

       This  manual  page  was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.

OPTIONS

       This program takes no command line arguments that are  available  to  a
       user.
