SYNOPSIS
       bsdfan [-d] [-c config-file ]

DESCRIPTION
       bsdfan automaticallty regulates the fan speed by	the sensor temperature
       and the user configuration.

OPTIONS
       -d     Start bsdfan as a	daemon

       -c config-file
	      Use the alternate	system wide config-file	 instead  of  /usr/lo-

	      The  system  wide	 configuration file.  Overridden by the	-c op-
	      tion.

	      Here the user can	specifies the levels the fan will be  set  to.
	      They  range from 0 (fan idle) to 7 (full speed), it's not	neces-
	      sary to use all levels.  Levels must be  declared	 in  ascending
	      order by level_number and	are declared as	follows:

	      level(level_number,level_min_temperature,level_max_temperature)

	      where level_number is the	level number as	described above	from 0
	      to 7,

	      level_min_temperature is the temperature below which  the	 level
	      will be decreased.

	      level_max_temperature  is	 the  maximum temperature beyond which
	      the level	will be	increased.

	      level_min_temperature for	the first level	must be	 equal	to  0.
	      levl_max_temperature  for	 the  last  level must be greater than
	      150.

	      An example is provided with the software.
