purple-remote(1) Send remote commands to Pidgin/Finch

SYNOPSIS

purple-remote command1 command2 ...

OPTIONS

Each command is of one of the three types:

[protocol:]commandname?param1=value1&param2=value2&...
FunctionName?param1=value1&param2=value2&...
FunctionName(value1,value2,...)

The second and third form are provided for completeness but their use is not recommended; use purple-send or purple-send-async instead. The second form uses introspection to find out the parameter names and their types, therefore it is rather slow.

EXAMPLES

jabber:[email protected]&message=hi
jabber:gochat?room=TestRoom&server=conference.localhost
jabber:[email protected]
jabber:addbuddy?screenname=my friend

setstatus?status=away&message=don't disturb
quit

PurpleAccountsFindConnected?name=&protocol=prpl-jabber
PurpleAccountFindConnected(,prpl-jabber)
