CATSIT.CONF(5) FreeBSD File Formats Manual CATSIT.CONF(5)

catsit.conf
catsitd services list

The catsit.conf file lists the services managed by the catsitd(8) daemon. Leading whitespace is ignored. Each line of the file is one of the following:
comment ...
Lines beinning with ‘#’ as well as blank lines are ignored.
command ...
Lines beginning with ‘%’ add shell commands to be executed before each of the service commands. These commands are executed in the order they appear in the file, for all services. These lines can be used to set shell or environment variables to be expanded in service command lines or used by the service processes.
service command ...
All other lines define services. The service name is separated from its command line by whitespace. The rest of the line after the service name is executed using the shell. The shell variable $0 is set to the name of the service.
@service command ...
Service names beginning with ‘@’ define privileged services, which are started with the same user and group as catsitd(8). This can be used for services which drop their own privileges or which call chroot(2).

% export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
