GOPHERRC(5)		      File Formats Manual		   GOPHERRC(5)

NAME
       gopherrc	- configuration	file for gopher(1)

DESCRIPTION
       The  gopherrc  file contains a list of directives that alter the	behav-
       iour of the gopher(1) client.  It is composed of	lines of the form:

	      Token: Value

       Tokens are case insensitive and the value field will change,  depending
       on  the token.  A pound sign ("#") at the beginning of a	line signifies
       a comment line.

       Gopherrc	files are used in a number of places.  There is	a  global  go-
       pherrc  file (called gopherrc).	This is	usually	placed in a systemwide
       directory.  A file with the same	format called remotegopher.rc is  also
       used by the gopher client when using the	-r switch.

       Also,  an  individual  has their	own customized version of this file in
       their home directory in the file	.gopherrc. On VMS this file is	called
       GOPHERRC.

       All of these files use the format described below.

       Most people will	set the	values in this file by pressing	the 'O'	key to
       set options in the curses gopher	client,	rather than editing this  file
       directly.  People considering editing this file on VMS should make sure
       their editor preserves the Stream_LF format of the file.

       Quick pseudo grammar

	      map: <content type>,<display command>,<print command>
	      SearchBolding: <yes|no>
	      Bookmarks:
	      <bookmarks>

       The following tokens are	recognized

       map:

       maps a content type (such as text/plain,	or image/gif) to  commands  to
       execute for displaying the document or printing the document, i.e.

       The  content  type, display command, and	printing command are separated
       by commas.

       The sequence of %s is replaced with the filename	of  a  temporary  file
       containing the document to be printed or	viewed.

       If the command starts with the vertical bar (|) the command will	be ex-
       ecuted immediately and the document will	be sent	to the commands	 stan-
       dard input.  Note this feature does not work on VMS.

       If  the	display	 command is set	to 'builtin', then the text file pager
       inside the gopher client	will be	used to	display	the item.

       SearchBolding:

       controls	the clients display of search terms.  If the value  is	'yes',
       then search words will be bolded.  Otherwise they'll be left alone.

       Bookmarks:

       The bookmarks in	.link format follow.  For more information on the for-
       mat of a	.link file, consult the	gopherd(8) manual page.

       Sample gopherrc file:

	map: text/plain,builtin,lpr %s
	map: image/gif,xv %s,
	Bookmarks:
	Type=1
	Name=Bookmark #1
	Host=gopher.tc.umn.edu
	Port=70
	Path=
	#
	Type=0+
	Name=textfile
	Host=foo.com
	Path=0/readme
	Port=70
