.cnf files

.cnf files are proprietary binary configuration files located in the ctrl directory and node directories and are maintained using the SCFG utility before Synchronet v3.20.

Auto-backup

SCFG features an auto-backup system controlled with the SCFG -b# command-line option to specify the backup level. -b5 is the default, providing for 5 backups of each file modified. -b0 disables the auto-backup feature.

.cnf files ending with .0.cnf represent the most recent backup of the .cnf file, .1.cnf the next to most recent backup, etc.

The oldest backup files (e.g. *.5.cnf when the backup level is 5) are automatically removed (deleted).

Development Notes

These files were originally a text-based configuration (*.cfg files in Synchronet version 1) but were converted to binary for efficiency reasons that no longer apply. In version 3.20 of Synchronet, these files were converted to .ini files; see newcfgfiles for details.
