GENISOIMAGERC(5)                                              GENISOIMAGERC(5)



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 environment 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  configuration
       file.

       Blank lines and lines beginning with '#' are ignored.
