    There are many commands, depending on what you want to do. For a list of all commands, type
    Code:
    /help

    That's exactly what you should get. If you want help on foo-command, type
    Code:
    /help foo-command
    What exactly do you want to do with pork?

    basically just run AIM and the foo-command thing isn't working
    Code:
    *** Help: Error: No such command or section: foo-command

    basically just run AIM
    Then
    Code:
    /connect exampleuser
    will connect you, Tab will toggle between the buddy list and the command interface, the up and down arrows select users on the buddy list, Enter starts a query with a highlighted buddy, and Alt + <number> switches the window to window number <number>.

    Those are the basics. I'm not sure I answered your question; I don't even know if you asked a question.

    pork does not support direct-connect. You should read all of the /help commands and documentation that comes with pork.
