The configuration file is called 'catseye_config_file.conf' and Cat'sEyE searches it in the directory '~/.catseye/'. In this file you define some behaviour of Cat'sEyE, e.g. which directories should be loaded at startup. But there are many more Options available. Get a complete list here.

You can download the config file in the download section. This file uses every keyphrase used by Cat'sEyE and gives a short explanation.

The syntax is very easy: Just type in the keyphrase you want to define followed by a colon (':') and the value you want it to be set. 'key:value', this is called single-structure.

The most keys need an additional information because they are supposed to be viewed in the contextmenu. This means they need a name. This keys always read two values, where the first is meant to be the name, how it shows up in the contextmenu, and the second is the value: 'key:name;value', this is called pair-structure.

Further more the most keys are able to read more than one value or (name;value)-pair and there are 2 possible ways to define more than one value for the same key:
The first just adds on value after each other: 'key:value1;value2;...' 'key:name1;value1;name2;value2;...'
The second uses more lines but has to repeat the keyphrase at every new line: 'key:name1;value1;' next line: 'key:name2;value2'
You can mix up both possibilities.

Lets get some examples:
The keyphrase 'strtdr' tells Cat'sEyE which directories to open in the right view on every start up. It expects the single-structure. 'strtdr:/usr/bin;/home;/dev/ftp'
This tells Cat'sEyE to load all three directories into the right side of the view.

The 'bkmrk:' key on the other hand expects a pairstructure and therefore looks something different:
This adds 2 items to your bookmarks-contextmenu called music and docs pointing to the directories above.

This syntax is valid for all keys in the config file. However, the syntax of the 'usercommands' have some extensions.
