city_conf - City Configuration Tool
[-s var=var] [-rm var] [-var var] [-l [var1 [var2 ..]]
Manipulate City configuration files formatted like:
# this is a config file
CITY_MODULES = /my/modules
CITY_CONF = /etc/city.conf
PERL_PATH = /my/bin/perl
When city_conf is configured it will request configuration information that
will be important to configure some of the other city tools. Those tool
will in turn use city_conf to figure out these common configurations as
well as to set their own local configuration values.
- -s var=val
Set a single value in the configuration file.
- -rm var
Remove/delete a single value in the configuration file.
- -var var
Display the value for a single variable from the configuration file.
- -l [var1 [var2 ..]]
List multiple values from the configuration file in: # Comments var1 =
value1 .. format. If no variables are specified the entire file is
- -f file
Use an alternate file besides the default city.conf file.
- -h, --help
Prints the usage message.
- -v, --version
Prints the version of city_conf.
