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.
