5.4.1 The configuration file


Definitions are enclosed within SGML-like beginning and ending tags. For example:


The last newline character is removed from each definition, so that the above becomes the string ``''

Variable substitution occurs on every definition before it is output. A number of specific variables are defined by which can be used inside a definition. For example:

        Sorry, the Broker at <STRONG>$host, port $port</STRONG>
        is currently unavailable.  Please try again later.<P>

When this definition is printed out, the variables $host and $port would be replaced with the hostname and port of the broker.
