SCFG

The Synchronet Configuration Utility (SCFG) is used for viewing and modifying the various CNF files in the Synchronet ctrl directory.

SCFG Main Menu

Command-line Usage

Help on the command-line usage can be displayed by executing the command: scfg -? or scfg –help:

usage: scfg [ctrl_dir] [options]

options:

-s  =  don't check directories
-f  =  force save of config files
-a  =  update all message base status headers
-h  =  don't update message base status headers
-u# =  set file creation permissions mask (in octal)
-c  =  force color mode
-m  =  force monochrome mode
-e# =  set escape delay to #msec
-iX =  set interface mode to X (default=auto) where X is one of:
       X = X11 mode
       C = Curses mode
       F = Curses mode with forced IBM charset
       W = Win32 native mode
       A = ANSI mode
       D = standard input/output/door mode
-v# =  set video mode to # (default=auto)
-l# =  set screen lines to # (default=auto-detect)
-b# =  set automatic back-up level (default=5)
-y  =  automatically save changes (don't ask)

:!: Note: some of the interface mode values are only available on particular platforms/operating systems.

CTRL Directory

If the SBBSCTRL environment variable is set, then SCFG will find the CNF files without needing you to specify the path to the ctrl directory ([ctrl_dir]) on the command-line.

If the SBBSCTRL environment variable is not set and the [ctrl_dir] is not specified on the command-line, SCFG will look for the CNF files in the current working directory.
