This is the README file for ERC. ERC is a powerful, modular, and extensible IRC client for Emacs. Installation ------------ Type `make install'. This will compile all the emacs-lisp files and install them in the directory /usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp/erc. The info manual will be installed to /usr/local/info. You'll most likely need to be the root user to install to these locations. If you wish to install to someplace else, edit the PREFIX, ELISPDIR, and/or INFODIR options in Makefile. QuickStart ----------- Put all the files in your load-path, and add the following to your ~/.emacs: (require 'erc)  Don't know what a load path is? See: http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?LoadPath Usage ----- Use M-x erc to connect to a server. You can connect to multiple servers. Customization ------------- Use M-x customize-group RET erc RET to get an overview of all the variables you can tweak. Documentation ------------- ERC comes with a manual. Type `make doc' to get the HTML and Info versions of it. Additional documentation is kept on the Emacs Wiki, and may be added to by anyone. * http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/ERC License information ------------------- ERC is available under the terms of the GNU General Public License.
