Irssi edit

Irssi is a terminal based IRC client for UNIX systems. It also supports SILC and ICB protocols via plugins.

some basics to get you started edit

connect to the irc server


connect to the pure:dyne channel

   /join puredyne

change your nick to myname (will be lintian or something else by default unless you edit your .conf file, see below)

   /nick myname

address robc specifically (tab key autocompletes nicks)

   robc: ping

open a private message window to robc

   /query robc

close current buffer (maybe when you are finished with a private chat for example)

   /buffer close

leave a channel (but stay connected to irc server)


quit Irssi
