SYNOPSIS


.Sm off X = " a b c "
.Sm on

DESCRIPTION

The rcm dotfile manager can be configured using a .rcrc file in your home directory. This location can be changed by setting the RCRC environment variable. The format is POSIX shell. It is sourced in by the lsrc(1), mkrc(1), rcdn(1), and rcup(1) programs.

It supports these variables:
COPY_ALWAYS always copy files that match the listed globs, never symlink them.
DOTFILES_DIRS
  the source directories for dotfiles. The first in the list is the source to which dotfiles created using mkrc(1) are installed. The default value is ~/.dotfiles
EXCLUDES a space-separated list of exclude patterns. Exclude patterns are explained in detail in lsrc(1) under the section EXCLUDE PATTERN.
HOSTNAME the hostname for this computer. This is normally computed using the hostname(1) command, but this command is non-standard and can prove unreliable. The HOSTNAME variable forces a known hostname.
TAGS the default tags.
SYMLINK_DIRS a space-separated list of patterns. Directories matching a pattern are symlinked instead of descended. Patterns are explained in detail in lsrc(1) under the section EXCLUDE PATTERN.
UNDOTTED a space separated list of patterns. Files matching this pattern will be symlinked without a leading dot. If a file is also in SYMLINK_DIRS, then the directory will be symlinked without a leading dot. Patterns are explained in detail in lsrc(1) under the section EXCLUDE PATTERN.
