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 They are superceded by command  line  options,  so  if  the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]
