NAME genisoimagerc - startup configuration file for genisoimage
DESCRIPTION genisoimage(1) searches for a configuration file in several places; it uses the first one it is able to open. First, if the GENISOIMAGERC environment variable is set, its value is used as the filename; like- wise for the MKISOFSRC environment variable. Next, genisoimage looks for files named .genisoimagerc or .mkisofsrc, first in the current working directory, then in the user s home directory. Next, it looks for /etc/genisoimagerc. Finally, it looks for a .genisoimagerc in the same directory as genisoimage itself is stored.
The .genisoimagerc file contains lines of the form
where TAG is one of the settings defined below. The case of the tag is not significant. All settings have command-line equivalents; if the command-line parameter is specified, it takes priority over the config- uration file.
Blank lines and lines beginning with # are ignored.
