NAME

       willie - A highly customizable Internet Relay Chat bot

SYNOPSIS

       willie [-q|--quit] [-k|--kill] [-d|--fork] [--quiet] [-c filename |--config= filename]
       willie [-h|--help]
       willie [-m|--migrate]
       willie [-w|--configure-all] [--configure-modules] [--configure-database]

DESCRIPTION

       willie  runs  a  bot  that provides some useful (and some useless) commands in one or more
       Internet Relay Chat channels. It reads configuration  options,  such  as  the  network  to
       connect  to,  channels to join, and more from a config file specified by the -c option. If
       no config file is specified, ~/.willie/default.cfg is  used.  If  the  configuration  file
       being  used  does  not exist, a brief configuration wizard will be run to set up the basic
       options, and optionally set up a database for user data and  any  modules  that  may  need
       configuration.

       In  most cases, simply running willie will be sufficient; the bot will start after initial
       configuration, and will run until it is told to quit through IRC.

OPTIONS

       -h or --help
            Show a brief summary of these options.

       -c   filename or --config= filename
            Run Willie with the configuration  options  from  the  specified  file.  An  absolute
            pathname  can  be given, or the name of a file within the configuration directory may
            also be given.  ~/.willie is the preferred location, but this and -c will  also  look
            in  ~/.jenni  and ~/.phenny for legacy reasons. When the suffix of the file is .cfg ,
            it may be omitted.

       -d or --fork
            Run Willie in the background. The bot will safely run  in  the  background,  and  can
            later be killed with -q or -d

       -q or --quit
            Gracefully  quit a daemonized instance of Willie. This option determines the instance
            to quit by the name of the config file given by the -c option, if used, so  the  same
            argument must be given with -c when using -q.

       -k or --kill
            Terminates  a  daemonized  instance of Willie. This option determines the instance to
            kill by the name of the config file given by the -c option,  if  used,  so  the  same
            argument must be given with -c when using -k.

       -l or --list
            List  all  config  files found in the usual configuration file directories: ~/.willie
            ~/.jenni and ~/.phenny

       -m or --migrate
            Attempt to migrate a configuration file for an older version of the bot  to  the  new
            format.  Versions prior to 3.1 used a configuration file written in Python, which can
            be converted with this tool.

       --quiet
            Suppress all output from the bot to the terminal.

       -w or --configure-all
            Run the initial configuration wizard.  This  can  be  run  with  -c  to  configure  a
            specified file, or without it to work on the default file.

       --configure-modules
            Check  for  modules  with  configuration  options, and allow the user to modify those
            options. Changes will be added to the default file, or the file given to -c if used.

       --configure-database
            Run a wizard for configuring the user information database options. Changes  will  be
            added to the default file, or the file given to -c if used.
