2.2 Simple Init File

GNU poke is a spartan program that tries to be as simple as possible by default, without fancy displays. Therefore, before exploring poke you may want to configure it minimally. This section contains a few recommendations in that respect.

First we must say that poke reads a per-user configuration from the ~/.pokerc file. See pokerc.

We recommend new users to set the following options:

.set endian little
.set omode tree
.set oacutoff 5
.set pretty-print yes

These options are explained later in this manual. See set command.
