Useful Tables

In this section, we present two tables that will help you with your use of options:

  • Section 24.2.1 lists all the options that can be used in the mc configuration file.

  • Section 24.2.2 lists all options in order of cf filename.

Options in the mc File

When you create a configuration file with the mc configuration technique, you can tune each option by including an appropriate statement in your mc configuration file:[40]

define(`option
               ´,`value
               ´)                       
               
                enclose in opposing single quotes 
define(`confAUTO_REBUILD´,`True´)              
               
               
                for example
DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Port=1097´)                    
               
                for example

The option is selected from one of the mc option names shown in the leftmost column of Table 24-4. The value is an appropriate value for that option. Note that the option and the value should each be enclosed in opposing single quotes to prevent m4 from wrongly recognizing either as a keyword or macro. Note that the leftmost single quote is actually the reverse apostrophe, and the rightmost is a normal apostrophe.
