.acheck - Acheck configuration file
This is the configuration file for acheck. If it exists, it must be at the top
of your home directory ( $HOME
). This file is optional
unless you don't want to use default values.
Lines beginning with a number sign (` #
') and empty lines will be
ignored. Spaces at the beginning and the end of a line will also be ignored as
well as tabulators. If you need spaces at the end or the beginning of a value
you can use apostrophes (` "
'). An option line starts with it's
name followed by a value. An equal sign is optional. A comment starts with the
number sign, there can be any number of spaces and/or tab stops in front of

The recognized colors (all of which should be fairly intuitive) are:
, and on_white
. Case is not significant. Underline and
underscore are equivalent, as are clear and reset, so use whichever is the
most intuitive to you. The color
alone sets the foreground color, and
sets the background color.
Note that not all colors are supported by all terminal types, and some terminals
may not support any of these sequences. Dark, blink, and concealed in
particular are frequently not implemented.
