CONFIGURATION FILE

When termpub is invoked, it will attempt to read a configuration file named .termpubrc in your home directory. If this file does not exist termpub will try to read $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/termpub/termpubrc.

The configuration file consists of a series of commands. Each line may only contain one command. The hash mark is used as a comment character. All text after the comment character to the end of the line is ignored. The file is expected to be utf8 encoded.

The following commands are defined:

set hyphenation on|true|off|false|0|1

Enables or disabled hyphenation

set language language_tag

Set the language used for hyphenation.

set width num

Set screen width to num.
