How To Configure ".signify" file


I had a stroke in 2011.

Pre-stroke, I had an extensive signify file, wherein there where many sub-files were being used.

Post-stroke.... I cannot figure this out AT ALL

I have done numerous web-searches on duckduckgo.com as well as linuxquestions.org, but nothing relevant, as the command signify is NEVER used, only the verb signify is used.

Can anyone point me to a source that will allow me to configure the command signify.

PS: the man-page has a very very brief explanation as to configure it, and is of little help.

Thank you for your help, and have a good day!

I'm sorry to hear about your stroke.

You can try looking in /usr/share/doc/signify. I don't have the package installed, so I'm not sure what documentation is packaged with it. You might also try
Code:
$ info signify

Yeah.... the "info" command is essentially the same as a "man" command (I never remember to use "info" as I will always use "man")

I need a more detailed explanation.

But thank you for your help, AwesomeMachine.

I don't think signify is a very popular Linux program. Did you look in /usr/share/doc?
