NAME

       KVIrc - un client IRC graphique.

SYNOPSIS

       kvirc [options] [server [port]] [ircurl [ircurl [...]]]

DESCRIPTION

       KVIrc est un client IRC visuel basee sur la bibliotheque Qt.

       Il  a  l'intention  d'etre  une  interface facile d'utilisation pour le
       protocole IRC (voir RFC1459) avec des extensions.

OPTIONS

       KVIrc acceptes les options suivantes :

       -h, --help
               Affiche une liste de toutes les commandes en lignes.

       -v, --version
               Affiche des informations sur la version.

       -c <fichier>
               Utilise <fichier> en tant que fichier de configuration au  lieu
               de  ~/.kvirc.rc  Si  <fichier> n'existe pas, utilise par defaut
               $HOME/.kvirc.rc

       -n <fichier>
               Utilise <fichier> en tant que fichier de configuration au  lieu
               de ~/.kvirc.rc Cree <fichier> si il n'existe pas.

       -f      Force  une  nouvelle  session  de KVIrc, meme si KVIrc est deja
               lancer.

       -e <commands>
               If a KVIrc session is already running, execute  the  <commands>
               in   that  session,  otherwise  startup  normally  and  execute
               <commands>.  <commands> must be a single shell token.  You  can
               eventually use this switch more than once.

       -x <commands>
               If  a  KVIrc session is already running, execute the <commands>
               in that session, otherwise do  nothing  and  exit.   <commands>
               must  be  a  single  shell  token.  You can eventually use this
               switch more than once.

       -r <commands>
               If a KVIrc session is already running, execute  the  <commands>
               in  that session, otherwise start up normally (do not execute).
               <commands> must be a single shell token.   You  can  eventually
               use this switch more than once.

       -m      If  a  KVIrc  session is already running, show an informational
               popup dialog instead of writing to the console.  This is useful
               when starting KVIrc from a graphical taskbar button.

       --nosplash
               Do not show the splash screen at startup

       [server]
               Connect to this server after startup.

       [port]  Use  this  port  for  connection.   This option requires also a
               server name.

       [ircurl]
               An url in the following form:

                 irc[6]://<server>[:<port>][/<channel>[?<pass>]]

               For each url on the commandline create a  new  irc-context  and
               attempt  to  connect  to <server> on the specified <port>.  The
               optional <channel> is joined just after the connection has been
               estabilished.

ENVIRONMENT

       KVIRC_LANG
               Language setting.  If not set KVIrc will check for $LANG

       LANG    Language  setting.   If not set (or set to 'EN','POSIX' or 'C')
               KVIrc will use the default language (english).

       FILES

              $PREFIX/share/kvirc/VERSION/* Directory with  the  global  KVIrc
              settings, modules etc...

              $HOME/.kvirc.rc  .  This is the first file that KVIrc looks for.
              If the -c commandline option is specified , the file  passed  as
              the  option  parameter is used instead of this one.  If the file
              is found , KVIrc reads the first non-empty line and treats it as
              the  path  to the KVIrc Local directory.  If the file can not be
              found or the KVIrc Local  directory  is  not  existing  ,  KVIrc
              enters  the  setup  mode  and allows selecting a new KVIrc Local
              directory.

              KVIrc Local directory/* Directory  with  the  local  (per  user)
              KVIrc settings.  Similar to the global one.
