SYNOPSIS

sic [-h <host>] [-p <port>] [-n <nick>] [-k <keyword>] [-v]

DESCRIPTION

sic is an extremly fast, small and simple irc client. It reads commands from standard input and prints all server output to standard output. It multiplexes also all channel traffic into one output, that you don't have to switch different channel buffers, that's actually a feature.

OPTIONS

-h <host>

Overrides the default host (irc6.oftc.net)

-p <port>

Overrides the default port (6667)

-n <nickname>

Override the default nick ($USER)

-k <keyword>

Specifies the keyword to authenticate your nick on the host

-v

Prints version information to standard output, then exits.

COMMANDS

:j #channel

Join a channel

:l #channel

Leave a channel

:m #channel/user msg

Write a message to #channel/user

:s #channel/user

Set default channel/user

Everything which is not a command is simply send the server.
