GENISOIMAGERC(5)              File Formats Manual             GENISOIMAGERC(5)



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

              TAG=value

       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.

              Equivalent to the -abstract command-line option.

       APPI   The  application identifier should describe the application that
