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.

              phone number.  There is space for 128 characters.  Equivalent to  the  -p  command-
              line option.
