NAME

       hobbitclient.cfg - Hobbit client environment variables

DESCRIPTION

       Hobbit  programs  use  multiple environment variables beside the normal
       set of variables.  For the Hobbit client, the  environment  definitions
       are  stored in the ~hobbit/client/etc/hobbitclient.cfg file.  Each line
       in this file is of the form  NAME=VALUE  and  defines  one  environment
       variable NAME with the value VALUE.

SETTINGS

       BBDISP The  IP-address  used  to  contact  the  Hobbit server. Default:
              Chosen when the Hobbit client was compiled.

       BBDISPLAYS
              List of IP-adresses of Hobbit servers. Data will be sent to  all
              of  the  servers  listed  here.  This  setting  is  only used if
              BBDISP=0.0.0.0.

              $HOBBITCLIENTHOME  setting  inherited  from  the  "runclient.sh"
              script which starts the Hobbit client.

       BBCLIENTLOGS

       Commands
              Many  extension scripts expect a series of environment variables
              to point at various system utilities. These are included in  the
              file when the client is built.

       Some environment variables are inherited from the "runclient.sh" script
       which launches the Hobbit client:

              -n".

       MACHINE

              For compatibility with Big Brother extension scripts.

              taken from "uname -s".
