    yum.conf

    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Yum uses a configuration file at /etc/yum.conf.
    
           Additional  configuration  files are also read from the directories set
           by the reposdir option (default is '/etc/yum.repos.d').  See the repos-
           dir option below for further details.
    
    
    

    PARAMETERS

           There  are two types of sections in the yum configuration file(s): main
           and repository. Main defines all global  configuration  options.  There
           should  be  only one main section. The repository section(s) define the
           configuration for each repository/server. There should be one  or  more
           repository sections.
    
    
    

    [main] OPTIONS

           The  [main]  section  must exist for yum to do anything. It consists of
           the following options:
    
                  cachedir Directory where yum  should  store  its  cache  and  db
                  files. The default is '/var/cache/yum'.
    
                  persistdir  Directory  where  yum  should store information that
                  should   persist   over   multiple   runs.   The   default    is
                  '/var/lib/yum'.
    
                  keepcache Either '1' or '0'. Determines whether or not yum keeps
                  the cache of headers and packages after successful installation.
                  Default is '1' (keep files)
    
                  reposdir  A  list of directories where yum should look for .repo
                  files   which   define   repositories   to   use.   Default   is
                  '/etc/yum.repos.d'.  Each  file in this directory should contain
                  one or more repository sections as  documented  in  [repository]
                  options  below.  These  will  be  merged  with  the repositories
                  defined in /etc/yum.conf to form the complete set  of  reposito-
                  ries that yum will use.
    
                  debuglevel  Debug message output level. Practical range is 0-10.
                  Default is '2'.
    
                  errorlevel Error message output level. Practical range is  0-10.
                  Default is '2'.
    
                  protect the package corresponding to the running version of  the
                  kernel.
    
                  protected_multilib  Either '1' or '0'. This tells yum whether or
                  not it should perform a check to make sure that  multilib  pack-
                  ages  are  the  same version. For example, if this option is off
                  (rpm behavior) then in some  cases  it  might  be  possible  for
                  pkgA-1.x86_64  and pkgA-2.i386 to be installed at the same time.
                  However this is very rarely desired. Install only packages, like
                  the kernel, are exempt from this check.  The default is '1'.
    
                  logfile  Full directory and file name for where yum should write
                  its log file.
    
                  gpgcheck Either '1' or '0'. This tells yum  whether  or  not  it
                  should  perform  a GPG signature check on packages. When this is
                  set in the [main] section it sets the default for all  reposito-
                  ries.  The default is '0'.
    
                  localpkg_gpgcheck  Either  '1' or '0'. This tells yum whether or
                  not it should perform a GPG signature check  on  local  packages
                  (packages in a file, not in a repositoy).  The default is '0'.
    
                  repo_gpgcheck  Either  '1' or '0'. This tells yum whether or not
                  it should perform a GPG signature check on  the  repodata.  When
                  this  is  set  in the [main] section it sets the default for all
                  repositories. The default is '0'.
    
                  skip_broken Either '1' or  '0'.  Resolve  depsolve  problems  by
                  removing  packages  that  are causing problems from the transac-
                  tion.
    
                  assumeyes Either '1' or  '0'.  Determines  whether  or  not  yum
                  prompts for confirmation of critical actions. Default is '0' (do
                  prompt).
                  Command-line option: -y --assumeyes
    
                  assumeno Either '1' or '0'. If yum would prompt for confirmation
                  of critical actions, assume the user chose no. This is basically
                  the same as doing "echo | yum ..."  but is a  bit  more  usable.
                  This  option  overrides  assumeyes,  but  is  still  subject  to
                  alwaysprompt.  Default is '0' (do prompt).
                  Command-line option: --assumeno
    
                  Command-line option: -t
    
                  exclude List of packages to exclude from  updates  or  installs.
                  This  should be a space separated list.  Shell globs using wild-
                  cards (eg. * and ?) are allowed.
    
                  +.IP +query_install_excludes  +This  applies  the  command  line
                  --exclude option (only, not the configuration +exclude above) to
                  installed packages being shown in  some  query  commands  +(cur-
                  rently: list/info/search/provides).
    
                  exactarch  Either '1' or '0'. Set to '1' to make yum update only
                  update the architectures of packages that  you  have  installed.
                  ie:  with  this  enabled yum will not install an i686 package to
                  update an i386 package. Default is '1'.
    
                  installonlypkgs List of package provides that should  only  ever
                  be  installed,  never  updated.  Kernels in particular fall into
                  this category. Defaults to kernel, kernel-bigmem,  kernel-enter-
                  prise,  kernel-smp,  kernel-debug,  kernel-unsupported,  kernel-
                  source, kernel-devel, kernel-PAE, kernel-PAE-debug.
    
                  Note that because these  are  provides,  and  not  just  package
                  names,  kernel-devel will also apply to kernel-debug-devel, etc.
    
                  Note that "kernel-modules" is not in this list, in  RHEL-6,  and
                  so anything providing that is updated like any other package.
    
                  installonly_limit  Number  of packages listed in installonlypkgs
                  to keep installed at the same time. Setting to 0  disables  this
                  feature. Default is '3'. Note that this functionality used to be
                  in the "installonlyn" plugin, where this option was altered  via
                  tokeep.   Note  that  as of version 3.2.24, yum will now look in
                  the yumdb for a installonly attribute on installed packages.  If
                  that attribute is "keep", then they will never be removed.
    
                  kernelpkgnames  List  of package names that are kernels. This is
                  really only here for the updating of kernel packages and  should
                  be removed out in the yum 2.1 series.
    
                  showdupesfromrepos  Either '0' or '1'. Set to '1' if you wish to
                  show any duplicate packages from any  repository,  from  package
                  listings  like the info or list commands. Set to '0' if you want
                  only to see the newest packages from any repository.  Default is
                  '0'.
    
    
                  groupremove_leaf_only Either '0' or '1'. Used to determine yum's
                  behaviour when the groupremove  command  is  run.   If  groupre-
                  move_leaf_only  is  '0' (default) then all packages in the group
                  will be removed.  If  groupremove_leaf_only  is  '1'  then  only
                  those  packages  in  the  group  that aren't required by another
                  package will be removed.
    
                  enable_group_conditionals Either '0' or '1'. Determines  whether
                  yum  will allow the use of conditionals packages. Default is '1'
                  (package conditionals are allowed).
    
                  group_package_types List of the  following:  optional,  default,
                  mandatory.  Tells  yum  which type of packages in groups will be
                  installed when 'groupinstall' is called.  Default  is:  default,
                  mandatory
    
                  installroot  Specifies  an  alternative installroot, relative to
                  which all packages will be installed.
                  Command-line option: --installroot
    
                  distroverpkg The package used by yum to determine the  "version"
                  of  the distribution. This can be any installed package. Default
                  is 'redhat-release'. You can see what provides this manually  by
                  using: "yum whatprovides redhat-release".
    
                  diskspacecheck Either '0' or '1'. Set this to '0' to disable the
                  checking for sufficient diskspace before a  RPM  transaction  is
                  run. Default is '1' (perform the check).
    
                  tsflags  Comma  or  space separated list of transaction flags to
                  pass to the rpm  transaction  set.  These  include  'noscripts',
                  'notriggers',   'nodocs',  'test',  'justdb'  and  'nocontexts'.
                  'repackage' is also available but that does nothing  with  newer
                  rpm  versions.   You  can  set  all/any of them. However, if you
                  don't know what these do in the context of  an  rpm  transaction
                  set you're best leaving it alone. Default is an empty list.
    
                  recent  Number  of days back to look for 'recent' packages added
                  to a repository.  Used by the list recent  command.  Default  is
                  '7'.
    
                  retries  Set  the number of times any attempt to retrieve a file
    
                  http_caching Determines how upstream HTTP caches are  instructed
                  to handle any HTTP downloads that Yum does. This option can take
                  the following values:
    
                  'all' means that all HTTP downloads should be cached.
    
                  'packages' means that  only  RPM  package  downloads  should  be
                  cached (but not repository metadata downloads).
    
                  'none' means that no HTTP downloads should be cached.
    
                  The default is 'all'. This is recommended unless you are experi-
                  encing caching related issues. Try to at least use 'packages' to
                  minimize load on repository servers.
    
                  throttle  Enable bandwidth throttling for downloads. This option
                  can be expressed as a absolute data rate  in  bytes/sec.  An  SI
                  prefix  (k,  M or G) may be appended to the bandwidth value (eg.
                  '5.5k' is 5.5 kilobytes/sec, '2M' is 2 Megabytes/sec).
    
                  Alternatively, this option can specify the percentage  of  total
                  bandwidth  to use (eg. '60%'). In this case the bandwidth option
                  should be used to specify the maximum available bandwidth.
    
                  Set to '0' to disable bandwidth throttling. This is the default.
    
                  bandwidth Use to specify the maximum available network bandwidth
                  in bytes/second.  Used with  the  throttle  option  (above).  If
                  throttle  is  a  percentage  and bandwidth is '0' then bandwidth
                  throttling will be disabled. If throttle is expressed as a  data
                  rate (bytes/sec) then this option is ignored. Default is '0' (no
                  bandwidth throttling).
    
                  sslcacert Path to the directory containing the databases of  the
                  certificate  authorities  yum  should use to verify SSL certifi-
                  cates. Defaults to none - uses system default
    
                  sslverify Boolean - should yum verify SSL certificates/hosts  at
                  all. Defaults to True.
    
                  Note  that  the  plugin  yum-rhn-plugin will force this value to
                  true, and may alter other ssl settings (like hostname checking),
                  even if it the machine is not registered.
    
                  sslclientcert  Path to the SSL client certificate yum should use
                  to connect to repos/remote sites Defaults to none.
                  ssl_check_cert_permissions  Boolean  -  Whether yum should check
                  the permissions on the paths for the certificates on the reposi-
                  tory  (both remote and local). If we can't read any of the files
                  then yum will force skip_if_unavailable to  be  true.   This  is
                  most  useful for non-root processes which use yum on repos. that
                  have  client  cert  files  which  are  readable  only  by  root.
                  Defaults to True.
    
                  history_record  Boolean  - should yum record history entries for
                  transactions. This takes some disk space, and some extra time in
                  the transactions. But it allows how to know a lot of information
                  about what has happened before, and display it to the user  with
                  the  history  info/list/summary  commands. yum also provides the
                  history undo/redo commands. Defaults to True.
    
                  Note that if history is recorded, yum uses that  information  to
                  see  if any modifications to the rpmdb have been done outside of
                  yum. These are always bad, from yum's point of view, and so  yum
                  will  issue  a warning and automatically run some of "yum check"
                  to try and find some of the worst problems  altering  the  rpmdb
                  might have caused.
    
                  This means that turning this option off will stop yum from being
                  able to detect when the rpmdb has  changed  and  thus.  it  will
                  never  warn  you  or automatically run "yum check". The problems
                  will likely still be there, and yumdb etc. will still  be  wrong
                  but yum will not warn you about it.
    
                  history_record_packages  This  is  a  list of package names that
                  should be recorded as having helped the transaction. yum plugins
                  have an API to add themselves to this, so it should not normally
                  be necessary to add packages here. Not that this  is  also  used
                  for the packages to look for in --version. Defaults to rpm, yum,
                  yum-metadata-parser.
    
                  history_list_view Which column of information to display in  the
                  "yum  history  list" command. There are currently three options:
                  users, cmds (or commands), single-user-commands.
    
                  Older versions of yum acted like "users", which  always  outputs
                  the  user who initiated the yum transaction. You can now specify
                  "commands" which will instead always output the command line  of
                  the  transaction.  You  can  also specify "single-user-commands"
                  which will display the users if there are more than one,  other-
                  wise it will display the command line.
    
                  You  can also specify "default" which currently selects "users".
    
                  device (path) or a host:port string to use a remote syslog.   If
                  empty  or points to a nonexistent device, syslog logging is dis-
                  abled.  Default is '/dev/log'.
    
                  proxy URL to the proxy server that yum should use.
    
                  proxy_username username to use for proxy
    
                  proxy_password password for this proxy
    
                  username username to use for basic authentication to a  repo  or
                  really any url.
    
                  password password to use with the username for basic authentica-
                  tion.
    
                  plugins Either '0' or '1'. Global switch to  enable  or  disable
                  yum  plugins. Default is '0' (plugins disabled). See the PLUGINS
                  section of the yum(8) man for more information on installing yum
                  plugins.
    
                  pluginpath  A list of directories where yum should look for plu-
                  gin   modules.   Default   is    '/usr/share/yum-plugins'    and
                  '/usr/lib/yum-plugins'.
    
                  pluginconfpath  A  list of directories where yum should look for
                  plugin configuration files.  Default is '/etc/yum/pluginconf.d'.
    
                  metadata_expire  Time (in seconds) after which the metadata will
                  expire. So that if the current metadata downloaded is less  than
                  this  many  seconds  old  then  yum will not update the metadata
                  against the repository.  If you find that yum is not downloading
                  information  on  updates  as  often  as you would like lower the
                  value of this option. You can also change from  the  default  of
                  using  seconds to using days, hours or minutes by appending a d,
                  h or m respectively.  The default is 6 hours, to compliment yum-
                  updatesd  running  once  an hour.  It's also possible to use the
                  word "never", meaning that the metadata will never expire.  Note
                  that  when  using  a  metalink  file the metalink must always be
                  newer than the metadata for the repository, due to  the  valida-
                  tion, so this timeout also applies to the metalink file.
    
                  available aren't compatible (or the user lacks  privileges)  and
                  that  if  the  metadata is corrupt in any way yum will revert to
                  the previous metadata.
    
                  'instant' - Just  download  the  new  metadata  index,  this  is
                  roughly  what  yum always did, however it now does some checking
                  on the index and reverts if it classifies it as bad.
    
                  'group:primary' - Download the primary metadata with the  index.
                  This  contains  most of the package information and so is almost
                  always required anyway. This is the default.
    
                  'group:small' - With the primary also  download  the  updateinfo
                  metadata,  this  is  required for yum-security operations and it
                  also used in the graphical clients.  This file also tends to  be
                  significantly smaller than most others.
    
                  'group:main'  -  With  the  primary  and updateinfo download the
                  filelists metadata and the group metadata. The filelists data is
                  required  for  operations like "yum install /bin/bash", and also
                  some dependency resolutions require it. The group data  is  used
                  in  some  graphical  clients  and for group operations like "yum
                  grouplist Base".
    
                  'group:all' - Download all metadata listed in  the  index,  cur-
                  rently  the  only  one  not  listed above is the other metadata,
                  which contains the changelog information which is used  by  yum-
                  changelog. This is what "yum makecache" uses.
    
                  multilib_policy Can be set to 'all' or 'best'. All means install
                  all possible arches for any package you want to install.  There-
                  fore  yum  install  foo  will install foo.i386 and foo.x86_64 on
                  x86_64, if it is available. Best means install the best arch for
                  this platform, only.
    
                  bugtracker_url  URL  where bugs should be filed for yum. Config-
                  urable for local versions or distro-specific bugtrackers.
    
                  color Display colorized output automatically, depending  on  the
                  output  terminal,  always (using ANSI codes) or never.  Command-
                  line option: --color
    
                  color_list_installed_older  The  colorization/highlighting   for
                  packages  in list/info installed which are older than the latest
                  available package with the  same  name  and  arch.   Default  is
                  'bold'.   Possible values are a comma separated list containing:
                  bold,  blink,  dim,  reverse,   underline,   fg:black,   fg:red,
                  fg:green,  fg:yellow,  fg:blue,  fg:magenta,  fg:cyan, fg:white,

                  ues.
    
                  color_list_installed_extra   The  colorization/highlighting  for
                  packages in list/info installed which has no  available  package
                  with  the  same  name  and  arch.   Default  is 'bold,red'.  See
                  color_list_installed_older for possible values.
    
                  color_list_available_upgrade The  colorization/highlighting  for
                  packages in list/info available which is an upgrade for the lat-
                  est installed package with the same name and arch.   Default  is
                  'bold,blue'.   See  color_list_installed_older for possible val-
                  ues.
    
                  color_list_available_downgrade The colorization/highlighting for
                  packages  in  list/info  available  which is a downgrade for the
                  latest installed package with the same name and  arch.   Default
                  is 'dim,cyan'.  See color_list_installed_older for possible val-
                  ues.
    
                  color_list_available_install The  colorization/highlighting  for

                  with  the  same  name  and  arch.   Default  is  'normal'.   See
                  color_list_installed_older for possible values.
    
                  color_list_available_reinstall The colorization/highlighting for
                  packages in list/info available which is the same version as the
                  installed  package  with  the  same  name  and arch.  Default is
                  'bold,underline,green.  See color_list_installed_older for  pos-
                  sible values.
    
                  color_search_match   The   colorization/highlighting   for  text
                  matches    in    search.     Default     is     'bold'.      See
                  color_list_installed_older for possible values.
    
                  color_update_installed  The  colorization/highlighting for pack-
                  ages in the "updates list" which are installed. The updates list
                  is  what  is  printed  when  you  run  "yum  update",  "yum list
                  updates", "yum list obsoletes" and "yum check-update".   Default
                  is  'normal'.   See color_list_installed_older for possible val-
                  ues.
    
                  color_update_local The colorization/highlighting for packages in
                  the  "updates  list"  which  are already downloaded. The updates
                  clean_requirements_on_remove When removing packages (by removal,
                  update or obsoletion) go through each package's dependencies. If
                  any of them are no longer required by  any  other  package  then
                  also  mark  them  to  be  removed.   Boolean (1, 0, True, False,
                  yes,no) Defaults to False
    
                  reset_nice If set to true then yum will try to  reset  the  nice
                  value  to  zero,  before running an rpm transaction. Defaults to
                  True.
    
                  depsolve_loop_limit Set the number of times any attempt to  dep-
                  solve  before  we  just give up. This shouldn't be needed as yum
                  should always solve or fail, however it has been  observed  that
                  it  can  loop  forever  with very large system upgrades. Setting
                  this to '0' (or "<forever>") makes yum try forever.  Default  is
                  '100'.
    
    
    

    [repository] OPTIONS

           The repository section(s) take the following form:
    
                  Example: [repositoryid]
                  name=Some name for this repository
                  baseurl=url://path/to/repository/
    
                  repositoryid  Must  be  a  unique  name for each repository, one
                  word.
    
                  name A human readable string describing the repository.
    
                  baseurl Must be a URL to the directory  where  the  yum  reposi-
                  tory's  'repodata' directory lives. Can be an http://, ftp:// or
                  file:// URL. You can specify multiple URLs in one baseurl state-
                  ment. The best way to do this is like this:
                  [repositoryid]
                  name=Some name for this repository
                  baseurl=url://server1/path/to/repository/
                          url://server2/path/to/repository/
                          url://server3/path/to/repository/
    
                  If you list more than one baseurl= statement in a repository you
                  will find yum will ignore the  earlier  ones  and  probably  act
                  bizarrely. Don't do this, you've been warned.
    
                  You  can  use  HTTP basic auth by prepending "user:password@" to
                  the  server  name   in   the   baseurl   line.    For   example:
                  then the value of mirrorlist is copied to metalink (if  metalink
                  is not set).
    
                  mirrorlist  Specifies  a  URL  to  a  file  containing a list of
                  baseurls. This can be  used  instead  of  or  with  the  baseurl
                  option.  Substitution  variables,  described  below, can be used
                  with this option.  As a special hack is the mirrorlist URL  con-
                  tains the word "metalink" then the value of mirrorlist is copied
                  to metalink (if metalink is not set).
    
                  enabled Either '1' or '0'. This tells yum  whether  or  not  use
                  this repository.
    
                  gpgcheck  Either  '1'  or  '0'. This tells yum whether or not it
                  should perform a GPG signature check on the packages gotten from
                  this repository.
    
                  repo_gpgcheck  Either  '1' or '0'. This tells yum whether or not
                  it should perform a GPG signature check  on  the  repodata  from
                  this repository.
    
                  gpgkey  A URL pointing to the ASCII-armored GPG key file for the
                  repository. This option is used if yum needs  a  public  key  to
                  verify  a package and the required key hasn't been imported into
                  the RPM database. If this option is set, yum will  automatically
                  import  the  key  from  the  specified URL. You will be prompted
                  before the key is installed unless the assumeyes option is  set.
    
                  Multiple  URLs  may  be specified here in the same manner as the
                  baseurl option (above). If a GPG key is required  to  install  a
                  package  from  a repository, all keys specified for that reposi-
                  tory will be installed.
    
                  gpgcakey A URL pointing to the ASCII-armored CA key file for the
                  repository.  This is a normal gpg public key - but this key will
                  be used to validate detached signatures of all other  keys.  The
                  idea is you are asked to confirm import for this key. After that
                  any other gpg key needed for package or repository verification,
                  if  it  has  a detached signature which matches this key will be
                  automatically imported without user confirmation.
    
                  exclude Same as the [main] exclude  option  but  only  for  this
                  repository.   Substitution  variables, described below, are hon-
                  ored here.
                  failovermethod Either 'roundrobin' or 'priority'.
    
                  'roundrobin' randomly selects a URL out of the list of  URLs  to
                  start  with and proceeds through each of them as it encounters a
                  failure contacting the host.
    
                  'priority' starts  from  the  first  baseurl  listed  and  reads
                  through them sequentially.
    
                  failovermethod defaults to 'roundrobin' if not specified.
    
                  keepalive  Either  '1'  or  '0'.  This  tells yum whether or not
                  HTTP/1.1 keepalive should be used with this repository. See  the
                  global  option in the [main] section above for more information.
    
                  timeout Overrides the timeout option from the [main] section for
                  this repository.
    
                  http_caching  Overrides  the http_caching option from the [main]
                  section for this repository.
    
                  retries Overrides the retries option from the [main] section for
                  this repository.
    
                  throttle  Overrides  the throttle option from the [main] section
                  for this repository.
    
                  bandwidth Overrides the bandwidth option from the [main] section
                  for this repository.
    
                  sslcacert Overrides the sslcacert option from the [main] section
                  for this repository.
    
                  sslverify Overrides the sslverify option from the [main] section
                  for this repository.
    
                  sslclientcert Overrides the sslclientcert option from the [main]
                  section for this repository.
    
                  sslclientkey Overrides the sslclientkey option from  the  [main]
                  section for this repository.
                  proxy URL to the  proxy  server  for  this  repository.  Set  to
                  '_none_'  to  disable  the global proxy setting for this reposi-
                  tory. If this is unset it inherits it from the global setting
    
                  proxy_username username to use for proxy.  If this is  unset  it
                  inherits it from the global setting
    
                  proxy_password  password  for  this  proxy.  If this is unset it
                  inherits it from the global setting
    
                  username username to use for basic authentication to a  repo  or
                  really any url.  If this is unset it inherits it from the global
                  setting
    
                  password password to use with the username for basic authentica-
                  tion.  If this is unset it inherits it from the global setting
    
                  cost  relative  cost  of  accessing  this repository. Useful for
                  weighing one repo's packages as  greater/less  than  any  other.
                  defaults to 1000
    
                  skip_if_unavailable  If set to True yum will continue running if
                  this repository cannot be contacted for any reason. This  should
                  be  set  carefully as all repos are consulted for any given com-
                  mand. Defaults to False.
    
    
    

    URL INCLUDE SYNTAX

           The  inclusion  of  external  configuration  files  is  supported   for
           /etc/yum.conf and the .repo files in the /etc/yum.repos.d directory. To
           include a URL, use a line of the following format:
    
           include=url://to/some/location
    
           The configuration  file  will  be  inserted  at  the  position  of  the
           "include=" line.  Included files may contain further include lines. Yum
           will abort with an error if an inclusion loop is detected.
    
    
    

    GLOB: FOR LIST OPTIONS

           Any of the configurations options which are a  list  of  items  can  be
           specfied using the glob syntax: glob:/etc/path/somewhere.d/*.conf. This
           will read in all files matching that glob and include all lines in each
           file (excluding comments and blank lines) as items in the list.
    
                  $arch This will be replaced with the architecture or your system
                  as detected by yum.
    
                  $basearch This will be replaced with your base  architecture  in
                  yum.  For  example, if your $arch is i686 your $basearch will be
                  i386.
    
                  $uuid This will be replaced with a unique  but  persistent  uuid
                  for  this  machine.   The  value that is first generated will be
                  stored in  /var/lib/yum/uuid  and  reused  until  this  file  is
                  deleted.
    
                  $YUM0-$YUM9  These  will be replaced with the value of the shell
                  environment variable of the same name. If the shell  environment
                  variable  does  not  exist  then the configuration file variable
                  will not be replaced.
    
           As of 3.2.28, any properly named file in /etc/yum/vars is turned into a
           variable  named after the filename (or overrides any of the above vari-
           ables).  Filenames may contain only alphanumeric characters and  under-
           scores and be in lowercase.
    
           Note  that no warnings/errors are given if the files are unreadable, so
           creating files that only root can read may be confusing for users.
    
           Also note that only the first line will be read and all new line  char-
           acters  are  removed,  as  a convenience. However, no other checking is
           performed on the data. This means it is possible to have bad  character
           data in any value.
