       gnuspool.conf - master configuration file


       gnuspool.conf is an optional file for providing additional environment
       variables to component programs of the GNUspool spooler and document
       management system.

       This may be useful for relocating standard files and directories, such
       as SPOOLDIR, so that a different spool directory is used.

       However completely arbitrary environment variable assignments may be
       made, in particular so as to pass the resulting environment on to
       subprocesses invoked by the despooler program spd(8).

       The format of the file consists of environment variable assignments
       such as:


       Comment lines may be included, introduced by a # sign and blank lines
       are ignored.

       Every component program of GNUspool examines this file and resets its
       environment from this file as the first step of execution.


       1.  Make sure that gnuspool.conf is world-readable!

       2.  Ensure that no part of GNUspool is running before altering this
