Ok let me begin, I'm trying to startx bitchx with a commandline switch -c , which according to the help doc's, says will start bitchx and auto join the channel i specify. I have the IRCNICK, IRCSERVER, and IRCHOST, set in my .bash_profile so I have been starting it with this command:
Bitchx -c #MyChan
The Docs say to escape the # with a \ . Not sure what exactly they are telling me to do. Ive tried:
Bitchx -c #MyChan\
Bitchx -c #\MyChan
Bitchx -c \#MyChan
Bitchx -c\ #MyChan
Bitchx -c #MyChan \
Oh yea Forgot, The machine bitchx is on is slackware, nothing plugged into this box but power and lan. I'm ssh'ing into this box from win2k(putty) And also from my other linux machines. The reason I want this to work is so that I can use screen to keep this channel open with an op.
