2 Getting Started

The command M-x erc will start ERC and prompt for the server to connect to.

If you want to place ERC settings in their own file, you can place them in ~/.emacs.d/.ercrc.el, creating it if necessary.

If you would rather use the Customize interface to change how ERC works, do M-x customize-group <RET> erc <RET>. In particular, ERC comes with lots of modules that may be enabled or disabled; to select which ones you want, do M-x customize-variable <RET> erc-modules <RET>.
