NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       stanza - Stanza file format

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       A  stanza  file  format  is  used  in conjunction with the
       libAF(3) stanza file library.

       The stanza file syntax  rules  are  as  follows:  Separate
       entries  by  one  or more blank lines.  A colon (:) terminates
 a entry name.  A  newline  terminates  an  attribute
       name  and  value  pair.   Separate  a  attribute  name and
       attribute value with an equal  sign  (=).   Separate  more
       than  one  attribute  value with a comma (,).  Entry names
       and attribute names can contain any  printable  character,
       except  whitespace,  a  newline,  or  special  characters,
       unless specified appropriately.   Entry  attribute  values
       can  contain  any printable character, except a newline or
       special  characters,   unless   specified   appropriately.
       Trailing  blanks  or  tabs are allowed at the beginning or
       end of lines.  A number sign (#) at  the  beginning  of  a
       line indicates a comment. Comments should be included only
       at the beginning or the end of an entry.

       The syntax for a stanza file entry is as follows:

                Attribute1_name = Attribute1_value
                Attribute2_name = Attribute2_value
                Attribute3_name       =        Attribute3_value1,

       .  .  .

       The  entry_name  variable  specifies  the entry name.  The
       attributes  for  the  entry   are   specified   with   the
       Attribute1_name,   Attribute2_name,   and  Attribute3_name
       variables.  The values for the  attributes  are  specified
       with      the      Attribute1_value,     Attribute2_value,
       Attribute3_value1, and Attribute3_value2 variables.

       Several special quoting characters allow attribute  values
       to  contain  special  values and data representations.  If
       you specify a quoting character,  surround  the  attribute
       value with quotes.  For example, to specify an octal value
       use the slash character:
