     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.
