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
