       ~/.curves - CurVeS preferences file


       In  the  user's  home  directory, the .curves file configures
       preferences for the CurVeS UI to CVS  version  control.   The
       hash  character  '#' all characters that follow up to the end
       of line are ignored.  Blank lines are ignored, too.  The sig‐
       nificant lines in the file have the format of

       <variable> = <value>

       where  the variable identifier contains no whitespace and the
       value is either a decimal number, a hexadecimal  number  pre‐
       fixed  by  0x,  or a string comprised of the first non-white‐
       space character after the equal sign and all characters up to
       the end of the line.

       In  addition,  boolean  options  may  take any of the strings
       "yes", "y", "yep", "true", "t" for a truth  value  and  "no",
       "nope", "n", "false", or "f" for a false value.

       ColorScheme                   1
              Defines  a  color  scheme for coding the file listing.
              The color coding provides a redundant  description  of
              file  status.   Scheme  0 looks good on the Linux con‐
              sole.   Scheme  1  is  better  for  X-Windows  XTerms.
              Scheme 2 is monochrome.

       CommitCommentEditor           line
              Specifies the name/method of entering commit comments.
              This option may take any of the values "line"  to  use
              the  standard  single line edit, "builtin" which *will
              eventually* invoke a simple windowed editor,  "editor"
              to  use the default user-specified editor, or "cvs" to
              use whatever method is defined for CVS.

       Debug                         0
              When non-zero, this option enables trace debug output.
              Trace  information is written to the file named by the
              option DebugOutput.

       DebugOutput ./log
              Pathname of file where  trace  debug  output  will  be
              written.   The  Debug  option  controls whether or not
              trace information is written to this log file.

       DebugTimestamps               none
              Describes the method, if any,  of  timestamping  trace
              debug  output  messages.   This option may take any of
              the values "tod" for time of  day,  "relative"  for  a
              measure  of  the time elapsed since the previous trace
              message, or "none".

       Editor                        $(EDITOR) or $(VISUAL) or vi
              Describes the editor used to  edit  the  configuration
              file from the File->Options command.

       InhibitAltCharset             yes
              Inhibits  the  use  of  the  termcap/terminfo  defined
              alternate characterset for drawing lines and  corners.
              Define  this  to  use  ASCII characters instead of the
              alternate  character  set.   If  the  termcap/terminfo
              record  doesn't  define  an  alternate  character set,
              ASCII will be used anyway.

       SenseBinaryFiles              yes
              Enables the automatic determination of  new  files  as
              either  binary  of  text.  When disabled new files are
              marked as Text but this  designation  may  be  changed
              with the CVS->BinaryToggle command.

       Sort                          ca
              Defines  the  default  sort  order  for files within a
              directory.  Each letter corresponds to the  sort  keys
              in  descending  order  of importance.  This sort order
              may be changed for the current CurVeS session by using
              the Sort command.

              The keys are as follows:

              a    sort alphabetically without regard to case.  Thus
                   'AXE' sorts after 'abe'.

              A    sort alphabetically according  to  ASCII  lexical
                   order.  Thus 'AXE' sorts before 'abe'.

              c    sort  by  file classification mark.  The order of
                   these marks is defined internally to  CurVeS  and
                   is  from  most  interesting to least interesting.
                   Source controlled files are more interesting than
                   uncontrolled files.  Edited files are more inter‐
                   esting that unedited, added, removed, or  out-of-
                   sync files.

              n    sort newest files first.

              o    sort oldest files first.

              l    sort longest files first, those with the greatest
                   file size.

              s    sort shortest files first, those with the  small‐
                   est file size.

       cvs                           cvs
              Sets  the  name of the local cvs program.  This is the
              exact name given to the operating system when  execut‐
              ing  CVS.   The program must be either be in the path,
              or the name must be an absolute path.  To enable  com‐
              pression  for  client/server  connections, add the -z#
              switch to this preference, e.g. "cvs -z9".

              Sets the name of the CVS server program used to access
              remote  repositories  via  rsh.  This preference over‐
              rides  the  environment  variable   CVS_SERVER.    The
              default  value  is a blank string which will not over‐
              ride the environment variable.  It is best to use  the
              environment  variable instead of using this preference
              so that the CVS command line operates correctly.  This
              preferences  tends  to  be  most useful when debugging

       more                          more
              Sets the name of the local pager program.  This is the
              exact  name  given  to the operating system when using
              more.  The program must be either be in the  path,  or
              the  name must be an absolute path.  The pager is used
              when showing CVS command output to the user.  The pro‐
              gram must act like a filter.
