Several system programs look for a file named OPTION.TXT on the current
user area when run. If such a file exists, infomation found there is
used to control "options" in the program.
For example, if an OPTION.TXT file had the line:
LOGIN: NOMAIL, COOKIE;
the LOGIN program would read the line, and as a result, supress the typing
out of mail, and give the user a fortune
The following is a list of system programs that use information from the
OPTION.TXT file (if it exists) in a user's area. Refer to the associated
documentation for the format and options available for each program.
