RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for scrollkeeper.conf (redhat section 5)

SCROLLKEEPER.CONF(5)		       File Formats Manual		     SCROLLKEEPER.CONF(5)

NAME
       scrollkeeper.conf - ScrollKeeper configuration file

SYNOPSIS
       System-wide configuration of ScrollKeeper

DESCRIPTION
       The  system-wide  scrollkeeper.conf file is typically installed at /etc/scrollkeeper.conf.
       It stores the default OMF paths which are searched by scrollkeeper-update  (8)  to  update
       the  ScrollKeeper documentation catalog.  The paths are held by the OMF_DIR variable which
       is assigned to a colon (:) delimited list of paths.

       Comment lines begin with the (#) character.

EXAMPLE
       A typical scrollkeeper.conf file will look like:

       # Comment
       OMF_DIR=/usr/share/omf:/usr/local/share/omf:/opt/gnome/share/omf:/opt/gnome-2.0/share/omf:/opt/kde/omf

NOTES
       Any user on the system is able to use the scrollkeeper-update (8) command  to  generate	a
       ScrollKeeper  database  at  any	path that the user has write permission to.  The user can
       over-ride the system default OMF_DIR path variable by setting a shell variable of the same
       name,  OMF_DIR.	In this way, a user can create a document catalog which contains a super-
       set of the system documentation, or a completely independent set of  documents  which  the
       user may be interested in.

       Note  that most applications will register its documentation at install time, and unregis-
       ter it at uninstall time.  Thus, a user who keeps their own personal ScrollKeeper database
       may need to periodically run scrollkeeper-update (8) manually (or with cron) to keep their
       database up-to-date.
