microdc(1) A command-line based Direct Connect client


microdc [OPTION]...


microdc is a command-line based Direct Connect client that uses the GNU Readline library for user interaction. It was developed from ground up and does not depend on any other program. Despite the command-line user interface, microdc was designed to be user friendly and simple to use.


This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`--').
-c, --config=FILE
Read configuration script from FILE rather than ~/.microdc/config.
-n, --no-config
Do not read config file on startup.
Show summary of options.
Output version information and exit.
Local filelist refresh interval (in seconds). If set to zero, program runs in a special slave mode: it never updates the file list, just checks every minute if the filelist changes, and if so - reads it. This is pretty useful if you connect to several hubs and use same filelist.


The following files are used by microdc (~ represents the current user's home directory):
This file is loaded on startup. It contains commands, one per line, that will be executed on startup. You can override loading of this file with --config and --no-config.
This is the command history file. It contains a list of commands that were typed and executed from the microdc prompt. It can safely be removed.
