NAME

       pacorc - configuration file for paco

SYNOPSIS

       /etc/pacorc

DESCRIPTION

       pacorc  is  the  system-wide  configuration  file  for  paco(8),  the  source code package
       organizer.

SYNTAX

       The file consists of comments and key-value pairs. Comments are  on  separate  lines  that
       start with a # symbol. The key-value pairs are on the form:
              key=value
       where key contains no whitespace and no equal signs.
       value  will  be  all of the text after the equal sign until (but not including) the ending
       newline.
       Occurences of $HOME and ${HOME} in value are expanded to  the  value  of  the  environment
       variable HOME.

OPTIONS

       The following options can be set. The equivalent command line options (if any), are listed
       in brackets:

       LOGDIR [-L|--logdir]
              Base paco logs directory. Default is '/var/log/paco'.

       MAX_DB_AGE
              Maximmum database age (maximmum number of days since the last update of  the  whole
              database).  When  this  limit  is reached paco prints a warning message.  If set to
              zero, the database is never considered too old. Default is 7.

       INCLUDE [-I|--include]
              Colon-separated list of paths to scan when logging the installation of  a  package.
              Default is '/'.
              Shell wildcards are allowed in the paths. See PATH MATCHING below for more details.

       EXCLUDE [-E|--exclude]
              Colon-separated  list  of paths to skip when logging the installation of a package.
              Default is '/dev:/tmp:/usr/src:/media:/selinux:/sys:/usr/share/info/dir'.
              Shell wildcards are allowed in the paths. See PATH MATCHING below for more details.

       BLOCK_SIZE
              File sizes in the logs are rounded up to the nearest multiple of this  value.  This
              should  be set to the block size of the file system. For most systems this is 4096.
              If set to zero, paco retrieves the block size of the file  system  for  each  file,
              which is the most accurate but time consuming choice. Default is 0.
              Note: This is not the same as the command line option -b (or --block-size).

       APPARENT_SIZE
              Like BLOCK_SIZE=1.

       LOG_IGNORE_ERRORS [--ignore-errors]
              Setting  this  variable  to  1  makes paco log packages even if the install command
              fails. This allows for logging uncomplete installations, or  clean  the  filesystem
              after an installation failure. Default is 0.

       LOG_IGNORE_SHARED [--ignore-shared]
              Setting  this  variable  to  1  makes paco skip shared files when logging packages.
              Default is 0.

       CASE_SENSITIVE
              Setting this variable to 1 makes paco behave  case-sensitively  when  matching  the
              package names given by the command line against the logged packages. Default is 0.

PATH MATCHING

       Variables  INCLUDE  and  EXCLUDE accept a colon-separated list of paths, each of which may
       contain shell-like wildcards (*, ? and [..]).  Files are matched  against  each  of  those
       paths, following the standard shell-like expansion, but with the following exception: If a
       path in the list does not contain any wildcard, and it is a directory, it matches any file
       within that directory.

ENVIRONMENT

       Paco honours the following environment variable:

       PACO_DEBUG
              If  set  to  "yes",  paco produces debugging messages, like the command line option
              '-vv'.
