       fgfsrc -	FlightGear command-line	options	file

       fgfsrc  is  a  file  containing command-line options read by fgfs(1) at
       startup.	This file is meant for those people who	do not use a graphical
       launcher	 to  run  the  simulator, so that they will be able to specify
       most preferences	that do	not change often there	(for  example,	custom
       scenery/aircraft	locations or screen size options), and only those fre-
       quently modified	(like the starting airport) on the command line.

       The file	must be	in plain-text format and ASCII-encoded.	It  must  con-
       tain  one  or  more command-line	options	listed in fgfs(1); each	option
       must be given on	a separate line.

       If the first non-whitespace character in	a line is an  octothorpe  (#),
       fgfs(1)	treats	the  line as a comment and ignores it. Comments	should
       not be added after an option, because that might	cause the simulator to
       fail  under  some  conditions  (notably,	when the command-line argument
       given on	the line is of the form	--prop=).

       Variables in paths, like	$HOME or $FG_HOME, are not expanded.

       ~/.fgfsrc.hostname, ~/.fgfsrc
	   Configuration files containing command-line	options	 for  fgfs(1).
	   The	simulator  parses  command-line	 arguments first, then ~/.fgf-
	   src.hostname	(where hostname	is the hostname	of  the	 machine)  and
	   then	~/.fgfsrc, if they exist, in that order.

       The  following  example	configuration  file synchronizes the simulator
       clock with the local real-world time, loads  real-world	weather	 data,
       sets the	window size to 1024x768	and enables random scenery objects and
       AI traffic:
