NAME

       gopherrc - configuration file for gopher(1)

DESCRIPTION

       The  gopherrc file contains a list of directives that alter the behaviour 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 gopherrc 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  executed  immediately
       and  the document will be sent to the commands standard 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 format 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
