BitchX and .bitchxrc


Hi all, I cant seem to get BitchX to read my .bitchxrc, here it is:
Code:
export IRCNICK=dave`2005
export IRCSERVER=irc.server.com
export HOME=dl/
export IRCNAME=skeptic
Also, on some servers i get (bad user info) then disconnected, ive been told that my realname was too short (it was 3 letters before), is this true?

Anyone know where im going wrong?

I don't know how bitchx utilizes its rc file, but my guess is the backtick is the first place to look.
Try removing it, or escaping it, and see if it makes any difference.

Have you using 'set' instead of 'export'? I've only been using bitchx a month or so but I've never seen an rc with export commands - iirc they should go in .bashrc or similar file, but you shouldnt need to set HOME.

From mine:

ircuser slacker
set realname slacker

I usually set my nick and server in command line:

BitchX slackhead irc.prison.net

I removed the backtick, and tried using "set" instead of "export", with no "=" but it doesnt seem to make a difference, BitchX isnt reading it

try putting your them in as an irc command, ie:

server irc.server.net
nick dave2005

or possibly
^server irc.server.net
^nick dave2005

It part of code should be place in your personal .bashrc file; if you are using bash;

Anyway; if you use tcsh; you can put replace export with set; etc...
