NAME

       siege.config - builds a .siegerc template in the user’s home directory.

INTRODUCTION

       With  the  release  of  version  2.00,  siege   supports   a   settings
       configuration   file  to  permanently  store  runtime  variables.   The
       settings  in  this  file  are  the  default  values  for  every   siege
       invocation.  They  are  superceded  by  command line options, so if the
       configuration file has a default "times =  10"  and  the  user  invokes
       siege with -t1000, then siege will run 1000 times and not 10.

       When  siege  is  installed on a system, a .siegerc file is installed in
       the installing user’s home directory.  This means that  only  the  user
       who installed siege has a configuration file.  The siege.config utility
       was designed to install a .siegerc file in the home  directory  of  the
       user  who  invoked  it. This makes it possible to have customized siege
       configuration on a per user basis.

INVOCATION

       The format for invoking siege.config is this:
       siege.config [no arguments]
