DESCRIPTIONgnuspool.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.
- Make sure that gnuspool.conf is world-readable!
- Ensure that no part of GNUspool is running before altering this file.
