inspircd - A modular C++ IRC Daemon


inspircd [--version] [--config <config>] [--runasroot] [--nofork] [--nolog]
[--logfile <filename>] [--debug] [--testsuite]


This manual page documents briefly the inspircd command.

inspircd is a modular C++ IRC Daemon (ircd) for Linux, BSD and Windows systems created to
provide a stable, modern, lightweight irc server from scratch and provide a vast number of
features in a modularised form using an advanced module API. By keeping the functionality
of the main core to a minimum we hope to increase the stability and speed of our project
and make it customisable to the needs of many users. InspIRCd is designed primarily to be
a custom irc server for the chatspike irc network (irc.chatspike.net) but we are releasing
it into the public domain under GPL so that you may benefit yourself from our work. The
project is written from scratch, avoiding the inherent instability under large loads which
can be seen in many other irc server distributions which have the same featureset.

The inspircd command starts the ircd server, using /etc/inspircd/inspircd.conf as its
configuration file unless used with --config.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below. For the complete documentation
for inspircd, please see http://inspircd.org/wiki/Main_Page.
