Subject Re: overriding config options on command line
Date Thu, 11 Jan 2007 21:02:13 GMT
you can have a different set of configuration files in a different 
config directory with your options and then export NUTCH_CONF_DIR on 
nutch or HADOOP_CONF_DIR on just hadoop before running your script.

export HADOOP_CONF_DIR=/my/config/path
