Introduction to Configuration

Configuration parameters are set in the configuration file. When setting configuration parameter values, you must use UTF-8.

This section describes how to enter parameter values in the configuration file.

Enter Boolean Values

The following settings for Boolean parameters are interchangeable:

TRUE = true = ON = on = Y = y = 1
FALSE = false = OFF = off = N = n = 0

Enter String Values

To enter a comma-separated list of strings when one of the strings contains a comma, you can indicate the start and the end of the string with quotation marks, for example:


Alternatively, you can escape the comma with a backslash:


If any string in a comma-separated list contains quotation marks, you must put this string into quotation marks and escape each quotation mark in the string by inserting a backslash before it. For example:

ParameterName="<font face=\"arial\" size=\"+1\"><b>","<p>"

Here, quotation marks indicate the beginning and end of the string. All quotation marks that are contained in the string are escaped.

Include an External Configuration File

You can reference an external configuration file to include shared settings. The following examples show how to include a configuration file, or a section or parameter from the file.

In all these examples, ConfigurationFile.cfg is the path and file name of the shared configuration file. You can specify the file location by using absolute paths, relative paths, and network locations. For example:


Relative paths are relative to the primary configuration file.
