DELAY.4TH(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					      DELAY.4TH(8)

NAME
delay.4th -- FreeBSD debugging boot module DESCRIPTION
The file that goes by the name of delay.4th is a set of commands designed to add debugging capabilities to loader(8). The commands of delay.4th by themselves are not enough for most uses. Please refer to the examples below for the most common situations, and to loader(8) for additional commands. Before using any of the commands provided in delay.4th, it must be included through the command: include delay.4th This line is present in /boot/beastie.4th file, so it is not needed (and should not be re-issued) in a normal setup. The commands provided by it are: delay_execute Executes the [string] procedure stored in the delay_command environment variable after loader_delay seconds. If the optional delay_showdots environment variable is set, a continuous series of dots is printed. During the duration, the user can either press Ctrl-C (or Esc) to abort or ENTER to proceed immediately. The environment variables that effect its behavior are: delay_command The command to be executed by delay_execute. loader_delay The duration (in seconds) to delay before executing delay_command. delay_showdots If set, will cause delay_execute to print a continuous series of dots during the delay duration. FILES
/boot/loader The loader(8). /boot/delay.4th delay.4th itself. /boot/loader.rc loader(8) bootstrapping script. EXAMPLES
Introducing a 5-second delay before including another file from /boot/loader.rc: include /boot/delay.4th set delay_command="include /boot/other.4th" set delay_showdots set loader_delay=5 delay_execute SEE ALSO

VERSION.4TH(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					    VERSION.4TH(8)

NAME
version.4th -- FreeBSD version string boot module DESCRIPTION
The file that goes by the name of version.4th is a set of commands designed to draw the boot loader version at the bottom-right of the screen. The commands of version.4th by themselves are not enough for most uses. Please refer to the examples below for the most common sit- uations, and to loader(8) for additional commands. Before using any of the commands provided in version.4th, it must be included through the command: include version.4th This line is present in the default /boot/menu.rc file, so it is not needed (and should not be re-issued) in a normal setup. The commands provided by it are: print_version Prints the contents of the loader_version environment variable right-justified at the column loader_version_x and row loader_version_y. The environment variables that effect its behavior are: loader_version Set automatically by loader(8), but you can override it by setting in loader.conf(5). This should be the version of boot loader used. loader_version_x Sets the desired ending column position of loader_version. Default is 80. loader_version_y Sets the desired ending row position of loader_version. Default is 24. loader_color If set to ``NO'' (case-insensitive) or ``0'', causes the version to be printed without color (default is ANSI Cyan). FILES
