5.1.2 String variables

These variables have a string value, which represent a file, a directory or a command.

This is the name of the directory where the temporary uncompressed files are put. The default is /tmp.

This is the extension which is appended to a virtual file name in order to obtain the real (compressed) file name. The default is .gz.

This is the name of the program to be invoked to uncompress the data. Default is gzip -dc.

This is the name of an additional configuration file. If this variable is defined and if the corresponding file exists, the configuration described in this file overrides the configurations in `~/.zlibrc' and in `/usr/local/etc/zlibc.conf' (`/etc/zlibc.conf' on Linux).
