telnetrc(4)                      File Formats                      telnetrc(4)

       telnetrc - file for telnet default options

       The   .telnetrc file contains commands that are executed when a connec-
       tion is established on a per-host basis. Each line in the file contains
       a  host  name, one or more spaces or tabs, and a telnet(1) command. The
       host name, DEFAULT, matches all hosts. Lines beginning with  the  pound
       sign  (#)  are interpreted as comments and therefore ignored. telnet(1)
       commands are case-insensitive to the contents of the .telnetrc file.

       The  .telnetrc file is retrieved from each user's  HOME directory.

       Example 1: A sample file.

       In the following example, a .telnetrc file executes the telnet(1)  com-
       mand, toggle:

       weirdhost toggle crmod
       # Always export $PRINTER
       DEFAULT environ export PRINTER

       The  lines  in this file indicate that the toggle argument crmod, whose
       default value is "off" (or FALSE), should be enabled when connecting to
       the  system  weirdhost. In addition, the value of the environment vari-
       able  PRINTER should be exported to all  systems.  In  this  case,  the
       DEFAULT keyword is used in place of the host name.
