 +======Command Line Usage of EPIC5======
 +
 +There are a number of command line options available.
 +The basic command-line syntax is:
 +
 +   epic5 [<​switches>​] [<​nickname>​ [<server list>]]
 +
 +The nickname may be at most 30 characters long.  The server list may be a
 +space-delimited list of server descriptions. ​ Each server name may use the
 +server:port notation if a port other than the default (usually 6667) is
 +desired. ​ The available switches are as follows:
 +
 +|-a         |Adds default servers and command line servers to server list.    |
 +|-b         |Runs EPIC in 'bot mode' in the background. ​                      |
 +|-c <​chan> ​ |Join <​chan>​ once connected to the server. ​                       |
 +|-d         |Runs EPIC in 'dumb mode' -- no fancy screen ​                     |
 +|-f         ​|Tells EPIC that your terminal will handle flow control. ​         |
 +|-F         ​|Tells EPIC to handle your flow control. ​                         |
 +|-h         ​|Prints a small help message that shows these options. ​           |
 +|-H <​host> ​ |Use virtual <​host>​ as your default hostname. ​                    |
 +|-l <​file> ​ |Loads <​file>​ instead of default ~/​.epicrc. ​                      |
 +|-L <​file> ​ |Loads <​file>​ instead of default ~/​.epicrc. ​                      |
 +|-n <​nick> ​ |Uses <​nick>​ as your default nickname. ​                           |
 +|-o         ​|Allow terminal IEXTEN handling (terminal eats %%^%%V and %%^%%O ​ |
 +|-O         ​|Disable terminal IEXTEN handling (terminal doesn'​t eat %%^%%V and %%^%%O)|
 +|-p <​port> ​ |Uses the <​port>​ you specify as the default port.                 |
 +|-q         ​|Tells EPIC not to load your ~/​.epicrc. ​                          |
 +|-s         |The client will not connect to a server on startup. ​             |
 +|-v         ​|Print the version of EPIC and then exit.                         |
 +|-x         |Run in full X_DEBUG mode.                                        |
 +|-z <​user> ​ |Uses <​user>​ as your default username. ​                           |
 +
 +Because the client uses getopt(3), you can combine these options in any way
 +that is considered normal for your operating system.
