NAME
       fmtutil.cnf - configuration file	for fmtutil

DESCRIPTION
       The  fmtutil.cnf	 file contains the configuration information for fmtu-
       til(8).	Each line contains the name  of	 the  format  (e.g.,  ``tex'',
       ``latex'', ``omega''), the name of the engine that is used by that for-
       mat (e.g., ``tex'', ``etex'', ``omega''), the pattern file (e.g.,  lan-
       guage.dat, language.def), and any arguments (name of an .ini file).

       Fields  are separated by	whitespace and complete	lines can be commented
       out with	``#''.	The ``pattern file'' field cannot be used to define  a
       file  that  is  used while building the format.	It tells fmtutil which
       files (separated	by commas) the format creation procedure reads and  it
       has  an effect to the options --showhyphen and --byhyphen.  If the for-
       mat has no way to customize hyphenation,	a ``-''	can be used  to	 indi-
       cate this.

NOTES
       The tex(1) and amstex(1)	formats	always load hyphen.tex.	 No customiza-
       tion by a pattern file is available for these formats.  Therefore,  the
       pattern-file  field  for	 the tex and amstex is usually indicated to be
       empty (``-'').

       You can,	however, build customized formats on top of  plain  tex(1)  or
       amstex(1)  by  using  bplain.tex	 instead of plain.tex (b for the Babel
       system).	See, for example, the bplain.ini file for the bplain format).

       etex(1) loads language.def, not language.dat.

       Symbolic	links to the correct engines (e.g., bplain -> tex) are	gener-
       ated  by	 the  texlinks(8) script.   Remember to	run texlinks(8)	if you
       run fmtutil(8) yourself,	rather than using the FORMATS option  in  tex-
       config(8).
