I would think there should be a command-line argument to specify what server it's connecting to.

A command line argument for this purpose is not really necessary. You can use the gui for this.

I think this material can be used both for the Wiki (I do not know how to best put it into the Electrum Wiki - it is quite a lot of text and I did not want to "spam" the wiki page with it), and also for some "help" text in the client itself (for help buttons or context-sensitive right-click).


thanks for that!
I guess the best way to proceed is to create a new wiki page, distinct from the existing one.

edit: text moved here https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Electrum/Documentation

I re-formatted the wiki page from ASCII-text to Wiki-style text.

Hope that other people will add content, too - there are some open points, e.g. I  have no clue what the term "gap limit" is all about.

I'm using electrum as a command line for a java application I wrote so I can't really use the GUI as an answer.


Also what does it mean when i use a payto command it it gives me the following error:
Quote
"Error: transaction rejected by memory pool
Then i get a long sequence of seemingly random letters and numbers.?

* When you _prioritize_ some of your wallet's addresses, these addresses will be used with priorities, and other addresses will not be used until the prioritized addresses contain no more Bitcoins.
* When you _freeze_ some of your wallet's addresses, these addresses will not be used for sending bitcoins but they will keep their balance.
  {Will they still not be used if all other addresses have zero balance, such that sending Bitcoins is not possible although the wallet has a vbalance? I think so, just not 100% sure...}

What does the "Tx" column mean in Electrum?
-------------------------------------------
--> Applies to "Receive" tab (own wallet's addresses) and "Contacts" tab (foreing addresses).

Tx stands for {... ?? "Transaction"? "Transmission" ?? ...}

The Tx column in Electrum displays a number for each Bitcoin address in the address list, both for own addresses ("Receive" tab) and for foreing addresses ("Contacts" tab).

In the "Receive" tab (own addresses):
The number in the Tx column indicates the total number of _incoming_ Bitcoin transactions that have ever been sent to this address.
{
The number of outgoing transactions is apparently not counted. I am wondering why the column is called "Tx" and not "Rx", because I understand that it indicates the number of times that Bitcoins had been sent to this address, i.e. how often This address "received" Bitcoins.
Does this "Tx" come from blockchain/blockexplorer terminology? Or why is it called "Tx" ("transmit") and not "Rx" ("receive")?
}

@Michael_S: Did you find out more about this? Can you add some more content to the documentation?

the answer is on the previous page.
in order to avoid answering several times the same question, I have started to update the documentation on the wiki, and I answered you there

main changes:
* the commands signmessage and verifymessages are compatible with the new compressed key format (thanks to nanotube for the patch)
* help buttons have been added in the settings dialog. gap limit setting moved back there.

Wow, so many new features! Thanks! Donation sent!

Request: it would be very useful if user could choose folder where QR is saved.

Also (don't know if this is windows only): Bmp QR file is about 150 times larger compared to png QR file. It would be nice to have png export.

Cheers!

Maybe I was wrong. So you can reseed imported addresses?
yes, the .seed file contains your seed and the private keys of imported addresses.

-> reseed
Is this information wrong?

no, this information is not wrong.
what is terribly misleadind is the use of the verb "reseed" with "imported addresses".

I dont understand it:
The .seed file contains the private keys of imported addresses but they can't be restored from the seed?

Exactly. The .seed file does not only contain the seed. it also contains imported private keys.

Importing keys is not a feature that I recommend to newbies.
I was not very enthusiastic about adding that capability to Electrum, I did it because it was requested by some users.
Please do not complain if it leads to confusion.

I would be good to make the documentation more comprehensible to the "normal" user.

sure. you are welcome to join the effort.
my point is that the "normal" user should not import keys.

I added a limit on the number of transactions that can be returned on requested addresses.
it is a DOS prevention measure.
the limit is probably too low. I will raise it if necessary.

Just a little suggestion: renaming the column to "Payments received" rather than "Received"?
That way, you can keep using numbers as values, as for the Tx column, and easily avoid dealing with the ugly "1 times" case.

and how do you deal with the ugly column width and wasted screen real estate that this will create?
