This is the name of the configuration file used by Litestep
, and PureLS
. It contains the various configuration and script elements comprising the interface design
of those programs.
With Darkstep, the configuration is rather strict, with defined sections for each module and for non-darkstep config settings, but LS and pLS have a very open setup, where the themer
has a large amount of freedom in how they plan to organize their step.rc.
Various ideas for improvement have gone around, including having a script.rc
file, which is pretty much a standard now, and the use of Includes
to allow a step.rc file to be broken up into several smaller ones. For example, you might have a chronos.rc file, which contains the load command, config settings and layout settings for the Chronos.dll
module, replacing these settings in the step.rc with a one line reference.
