7.2.6 Program Settings

The commands described in this subsection are designed mostly for use in dico initialization file (see Initialization File).

The autologin command sets the name of autologin file to be used for authentication. When used without arguments, it displays the current setting. The argument to autologin command is subject to tilde expansion, i.e. if it begins with ‘~/’, this prefix is replaced with the name of the current user home directory, followed by ‘/’. Similarly, a prefix ‘~login/’ is replaced by the home directory for user login, followed by a slash.

See Autologin, for a detailed discussion of the autologin feature.

The quiet command toggles the display of dico startup banner. When started, dico prints a short list of information useful for beginning users: the program version and warranty conditions and a command to get help, e.g.:
