weatherrc(5)		      File Formats Manual		  weatherrc(5)

NAME
       weatherrc - configuration file format for the weather(1)	utility

DESCRIPTION
       The  weatherrc  file  format is intended	to specify a set of aliases by
       which to	group URIs for METAR  station  conditions  and	alert/forecast
       zones, but other	command-line options and flags for the weather utility
       can be specified	as well.  The file is organized	as an INI-format  con-
       fig,  with  the	alias  name  in	[] brackets and	the associated parame-
       ter/value pairs on following lines.  Parameters and  their  values  are
       separated by = or : characters.	Multi-word values do not need quoting.
       These parameters	are supported...

       alert  include local alert notices (possible values are False and  True
	      or 0 and 1)

       atypes list  of	alert notification types to display (ex: tornado_warn-
	      ing,urgent_weather_message)

       cache  control all caching (possible values are False and True or 0 and
	      1)

       cache_data
	      control  retrieved  data	caching	(possible values are False and
	      True or 0	and 1)

       cache_search
	      control search result caching (possible  values  are  False  and
	      True or 0	and 1)

       cacheage
	      duration in seconds to refresh cached data (ex: 900)

       cachedir
	      directory	for storing cached searches and	data (ex: ~/.weather)

       conditions
	      output current conditions	(possible values are False and True or
	      0	and 1)

       defargs
	      list of default command-line arguments (ex: avl,rdu)

       forecast
	      include a	local forecast (possible values	are False and True  or
	      0	and 1)

       headers
	      list of conditions headers to display (ex: temperature,wind)

       imperial
	      filter/convert  conditions  for US/UK units (possible values are
	      False and	True or	0 and 1)

       metric filter/convert conditions	for metric units (possible values  are
	      False and	True or	0 and 1)

       quiet  skip  preambles  and don't indent	(possible values are False and
	      True or 0	and 1)

       setpath
	      directory	search path for	correlation sets (ex: .:~/.weather)

       verbose
	      show full	decoded	feeds (possible	values are False and True or 0
	      and 1)

EXAMPLES
       The  following  is  an  example	~/.weather/weatherrc defining a	couple
       aliases named home and work to be displayed when	 running  the  utility
       with no aliases specified...

[default]
defargs	= home,work

[home]
description = Conditions and Forecast at Home
forecast = True
metar =	http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/observations/metar/decoded/KRDU.TXT
zone_forecast =	http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/forecasts/zone/nc/ncz041.txt

[work]
description = Conditions at Work
metar =	http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/observations/metar/decoded/KGSO.TXT

       Now if weather is invoked by itself on the command line,	it will	output
       conditions for home and work, and also a	forecast for home only.
