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 en-
       vironment  variable is set, its value is	used as	the filename; likewise
       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.

       APPI   The  application identifier should describe the application that
	      will be on the disc.  There is space for 128 characters.	Equiv-

       many of these fields.  See the file defaults.h.
