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  They  are  superceded  by  command  line  options,  so  if  the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