NAME
     ezjail.conf -- configuration file for ezjail script

DESCRIPTION
     The file ezjail.conf contains settings that control the operation of the
     ezjail rc(8) script. It is	also read by the ezjail-admin utility to fig-
     ure out where it should perform its actions. Its path is set at installa-
     tion time to /usr/local/etc/ezjail.conf, with an example file installed
     at	/usr/local/etc/ezjail.conf.sample.

     This file is really a shell script	that is	sourced	by the ezjail-admin
     command at	run-time.  ``(str)'' denotes a string; it should be enclosed
     in	quotes if it contains space.  ``(bool)'' notes a boolean, whose	possi-
     ble values	are ``YES'' and	``NO''.
