What is a .CHA file?

A .CHA file is a type of file specifically used for Internet Relay Chat (IRC) applications. IRC is a form of real-time Internet text messaging or synchronous conferencing. The .CHA file contains settings that help these applications connect to an IRC channel. This includes important details like the server address, the port number to connect through, the name of the IRC channel, and sometimes a password if the channel is private.

When you have a .CHA file, you can use it with IRC client programs such as mIRC, Visual IRC, XChat, and Snak. These programs can read the .CHA file and use the information inside it to automatically connect you to the specified IRC channel. This makes it easier for users to join their favorite chat rooms without having to enter all the connection details manually each time.

To use a .CHA file, you typically just need to double-click on it, assuming you have an IRC client installed that recognizes this file type. The client will then read the file and connect you to the IRC channel specified in the file's settings.

Additionally, if you need to make changes to a .CHA file, such as updating the server information or changing the channel password, you can do so using software like DTL (Dutch Type Library) FontMaster. This software allows you to open and edit .CHA files, although it is primarily designed for other purposes related to font management.

In summary, .CHA files are configuration files used by various IRC clients to store settings for connecting to specific IRC channels. They simplify the process of joining chat channels by automating the connection setup. Programs like mIRC, Visual IRC, XChat, and Snak can open these files, and they can be edited with specialized software like DTL FontMaster.
