       znc - An advanced IRC bouncer


       znc --help
       znc --version
       znc --makepass
       znc [-n] [-d datadir] [-D] [-f]
       znc [-n] [-d datadir] [-D] [-f] --makeconf
       znc [-n] [-d datadir] [-D] [-f] --makepem


       znc  is  an IRC proxy.  It runs as a daemon and connects to IRC server, then allows you to
       connect from a workstation and work as the user that is  logged  in  to  the  IRC  server.
       After  you disconnect, it maintains the connection to the server.  It acts like any normal
       IRC server, so you can use any IRC client to connect to it.


       -h, --help
              Output a brief help message.

       -v, --version
              Show the full version number.

       -n, --no-color
              Don't use any color escape sequences.

       -f, --foreground
              Don't fork the ZNC process into the background.

       -D, --debug
              Print debug output to the console. Implies --foreground.

       -d DATADIR, --datadir=DATADIR
              Specify another datadir.  This is where znc saves everything.

       -c, --makeconf
              Interactively create a new configuration.

       -s, --makepass
              Hash a password for use in znc.conf.

       -p, --makepem
              Generate znc.pem.  This is the server certificate znc uses.  You need this for SSL.

       -r, --allow-root
              Don't complain if ZNC is run with root privilegies.


       This section explains how znc reacts to different signals:

       SIGINT Exit ZNC. This is equivalent to /znc shutdown

       SIGHUP Reload znc.conf. This is equivalent to /znc rehash

              Rewrite znc.conf. This is equivalent to /znc saveconfig


              Static module data like webadmin skins

              znc installs its modules to this directory.

              These are the headers needed for compiling own modules.

       ~/.znc This is the default datadir. The following paths assume that you use this.  If  you
              change this via --datadir then the following lines are relative to that dir.

              This  is  the  server  certificate  znc  uses  for listening on SSL ports.  You can
              generate this via --makepem and you may replace this with your own certificate,  if
              you want to.

              If you compile your own modules, you can save them here.

              This is the path to znc.conf.  Use --makeconf for an easy way to generate it.

              The  data for every user is saved in this dir.  USERNAME refers to the user name of
              that user.

              This is where each module can save some stuff. This is mainly used for  remembering
              module settings that are not part of znc.conf.

              This is where global modules may save their settings.
