The Fish

The Fish provides a GTK-based graphical tool to manage and edit FreeBSD system variables stored in /etc/defaults/rc.conf and /etc/rc.conf. For testing purposes, or, for users that need to have different configurations, the program honours two environment variables: FISH_RC_DEFAULTS and FISH_RC.
