5. Configuring Mason

Most of the configuration is set via environment variables. For permanent changes, try

export VARIABLE=value

For one time settings, just put the variables on the command line just before calling the program. For example:

tail -f --lines=0 /var/log/messages | ECHOCOMMAND=ipchains mason

If you set a variable both on the command line and in /etc/masonrc, be warned that /etc/masonrc wins.

The main documentation for all the configurable fields is conveniently in /etc/masonrc .
