5.4.3 Integrating your customized configuration file

The configuration files are kept in $HARVEST_HOME/cgi-bin/lib. The name of a customized file is listed in the query.html form, and passed as an option to the program.


The simplest way to specify the customized file is by placing and <INPUT> tag in the HTML form. For example:

        <INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="brokerqueryconfig" VALUE="">

Another way is to allow users to select from different customizations with a <SELECT> list:

        <SELECT NAME="brokerqueryconfig">
        <OPTION VALUE=""> Default
        <OPTION VALUE=""> Customized
        <OPTION VALUE="" SELECTED> Highly Customized
