INNCONFVAL(1)             InterNetNews Documentation             INNCONFVAL(1)




NAME

       innconfval - Get configuration parameters from inn.conf


SYNOPSIS

       innconfval [-pstv] [-i file] [parameter ...]

       innconfval -C [-i file]


DESCRIPTION

       innconfval normally prints the values of the parameters specified on
       the command line.  By default, it just prints the parameter values, but
       if -p, -s, or -t are given, it instead prints the parameter and value
       in the form of a variable assignment in Perl, Bourne shell, or Tcl
       respectively.  If no parameters are specifically requested, innconfval
       prints out all parameter values (this isn’t particularly useful unless
       one of -p, -s, or -t were specified).

       All parameters are taken from inn.conf except for version, which is
       always the version string of INN.

       If given the -C option, innconfval instead checks inn.conf, reporting
       any problems found to standard error.  innconfval will exit with status
       0 if no problems are found and with status 1 otherwise.


OPTIONS

       -C  Check inn.conf rather than printing out the values of parameters.

       -i file
           Use file as the source configuration file rather than inn.conf.
           file must be a valid inn.conf file and will be parsed the same as
           inn.conf would be.

       -p  Print out parameters as Perl assignment statements.  The variable
           name will be the same as the inn.conf parameter, and string values
           will be enclosed in single quotes with appropriate escaping.
           Boolean values will be mapped to "true" or "false", and string
           parameters that are set to NULL will be mapped to empty strings.

       -s  Print out parameters as Bourne shell assignment statements.  The
           variable name will be the inn.conf parameter name in all capitals,
           and all variables will be exported.  String values will be enclosed
           in single quotes with appropriate escaping, and boolean values will
           be mapped to "true" or "false".  String parameters that are set to
           NULL will be mapped to empty strings.

       -t  Print out parameters as Tcl assignment statements.  The variable
           name will be the same as the inn.conf parameter name but with
           "inn_" prepended, and string variables will be escaped appropri-
           ately.  Boolean values will be mapped to "true" or "false" and
           string parameters that are set to NULL will be mapped to empty
           strings.

       -v  Print INN’s version.  This is equivalent to "innconfval version".
