6.4 Configuration files

There are a few configuration files to control certain aspects of scdaemons's operation. Unless noted, they are expected in the current home directory (see option –homedir).

scdaemon.conf
This is the standard configuration file read by scdaemon on startup. It may contain any valid long option; the leading two dashes may not be entered and the option may not be abbreviated. This default name may be changed on the command line (see option –options).
scd-event
If this file is present and executable, it will be called on veyer card reader's status changed. An example of this script is provided with the distribution
reader_n.status
This file is created by sdaemon to let other applications now about reader status changes. Its use is now deprecated in favor of scd-event.
