CONFIGURATIONvfu configuration is divided in two parts (files): vfu.conf This file contains configuration for external editor and pager, favorite directories, file-type colorization. This is plain text file which format is described below. vfu only reads vfu.conf, it never writes in it! vfu.options This file contains all Options/Toggles which can be changed from inside vfu -- Options menu. vfu.options is binary file and is overwritten on vfu exit or on change option event! Deleting this file will reset vfu toggles to default values. vfu.options is not portable between vfu versions! Location of vfu.conf vfu.conf can be placed as any of: $HOME/.vfu/vfu.conf $HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/vfu.conf (if $RC_PREFIX is exported) /etc/vfu.conf /usr/local/etc/vfu.conf /usr/local/vfu.conf Other files location All other files including vfu.options are placed in: $HOME/.vfu/ $HOME/$RC_PREFIX/vfu/ What is "$RC_PREFIX" and why to use it? Some more information for this can be found in the CONFIG file which is supplied with vfu package.
