       System-wide configuration of ScrollKeeper


       The   system-wide   scrollkeeper.conf  file  is  typically
       installed  at  /etc/scrollkeeper.conf.   It   stores   the
       default  OMF  paths  which  are  searched by scrollkeeper-
       update (8) to update the ScrollKeeper documentation  cata­
       log.   The paths are held by the OMF_DIR variable which is
       assigned to a colon (:) delimited list of paths.

       Comment lines begin with the (#) character.


       A typical scrollkeeper.conf file will look like:

       # Comment


       Any user on the system is able to  use  the  scrollkeeper-
       update  (8) command to generate a ScrollKeeper database at
       any path that the user has write permission to.  The  user
       can  over-ride the system default OMF_DIR path variable by
       setting a shell variable of the same  name,  OMF_DIR.   In
       this  way, a user can create a document catalog which con­
       tains a superset of the system documentation,  or  a  com­
       pletely independent set of documents which the user may be
       interested in.

       Note that most applications will register  its  documenta­
       tion at install time, and unregister it at uninstall time.
       Thus, a user who keeps  their  own  personal  ScrollKeeper
       database  may need to periodically run scrollkeeper-update
       (8) manually (or with cron) to keep their database  up-to-
