2 Auto-pilot Configurations

This chapter describes the Auto-pilot configuration syntax. Auto-pilot configurations are much like programs, in that they support some simple loops and setting variables.

Comments start with a pound sign (#) and are terminated by the end of line. Blank lines and initial spaces are ignored. Auto-pilot supports two types of variable substitution: internal variables and environment variables. Before executing a line of the script %VAR% is replaced with the value of the internal variable VAR and $VAR$ is replaced with the value of the environment variable VAR.

First we describe each directive in Directive Reference. Next, we present an example configuration used by Postmark in Configuration Example.
