mldonkey_options(1) a configuration editor for mlnet init file.


mldonkey_options [-s] [-g name] {-f file}


This manual page documents briefly the mldonkey_options command.

This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program is Debian GNU/Linux specific.

This script was written by the debian developer to enable easy configuration through debconf of mlnet server. There is two way of using it : fetching a variable or setting variable.

-f file

This option is needed. This is the name of the file which will be opened and parsed.

-g name

Name of the variable to fetch. Be conscient that only some variable can be outputed. Only string, ident, simple list, int and float variable can be displayed. All the variable will be displayed unquoted. It is very limitative, but it is recommended to use it only to fetch some simple value : password, port...


The application switch to option edition. In fact you will have to type all variable as you want it to be set in the file. At the end of the input the file is writtent and contains all the value sets.

If one option, you set, is not in the file, it will be append at the end of the file
