Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-492) make our launcher scripts recognize cascading defaults
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2012 17:44:28 GMT

Roman Shaposhnik commented on BIGTOP-492:
-----------------------------------------

I'm not quite sure whether /etc/<util>rc or /etc/bigtop/<util>rc will be a better
name for the system-level rc file for each component.

> Almost all Unix (POSIX?) command line utilities have a nice feature of recognizing cascading
defaults. The system-level one is typically named /etc/<util>rc and the user-level one
is typically picked from ~/.<util>rc
> I propose that we introduce the same for all of the /usr/bin launcher scripts that we
support in Bigtop. The proposed format of the rc files is that of POSIX-compatible sh(1) code
snippet with an overall effect of exporting those variables that affect execution.
> Thoughts?
