Use the `help` command to learn about additional commands. + +## RC files + +You can use an RC file to automatically run any sequence of valid AV-98 +commands upon start up. This can be used to make settings controlled with the +`set` or `handler` commanders persistent. You can also put a `go` command in +your RC file to visit a "homepage" automatically on startup, or to pre-prepare +a `tour` of your favourite Gemini sites. + +The RC file should be called `av98rc`. AV-98 will look for it first in +`~/.av98/` and second in `~/.config/av98/`. Note that either directory might +already exist even if you haven't created it manually, as AV-98 will, if +necessary, create the directory itself the first time you save a bookmark (the +bookmark file is saved in the same location). AV-98 will create +`~/.config/av98` only if `~/.config/` already exists on your system, otherwise +it will create `~/.av98/`.
