load autojoin
set autocreate_split_channels [ON|OFF|TOGGLE]
join #chan1[,#chan2…] [key[,key]…]


Note: this script may be replaced with a different script in the future, so this information is subject to change.

When you load this script, it reads the file ~/.irc/channels which should contain records of the form

<channel> <winnum> <group> [key]

such as in:

#epic 2 efnet
#test321 3 efnet test.8

For each channel in your channels file, when you connect to a server belonging to the appropriate group, the client will join the channel and put that channel in the numbered window, creating the window if necessary. If you later kill that window, the client will automatically part the channel (which is different from the default behavior, which is to move the channel to another window).

If set autocreate_split_channels is OFF (the default), then when the client creates a new window it will be a hidden window. If it is ON, then the new window will be a split window.


This script first appeared in EPIC5-0.3.1.
