NAME rcrc — configuration for rcm
SYNOPSIS X=“a b c”
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)
, and rcup(1)
It supports these variables:
always copy files that match the listed globs, never symlink them.
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
a space-separated list of exclude patterns. Exclude patterns are explained in detail in lsrc(1) under the section EXCLUDE PATTERN.
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.
the default tags.
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.
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.

We only expand tilde inside DOTFILES_DIRS
and not inside any patterns. For more notes on the caution you should exercise around patterns, see the BUGS section of lsrc(1)
