# This file is the system-wide dosemu.conf or the per-user ~/.dosemurc,
# included by global.conf or dosemu.bin.
#
# ./doc/README.txt (chapter 2.) contains a description of the syntax
# and the usage of dosemu.conf and .dosemurc.
#
# The commented-out values are defaults, here for documentation purposes
# only. Options marked [priv] cannot be changed in ~/.dosemurc.
#
# (optional) access rights are defined in
