4 Installing Eloquence on the Linux platform

Configuration of the GUI Dialog Server

The GUI dialog server allows Eloquence programs to apply a graphical user interface. The process about how the Eloquence program (i.e. the eloqcore process) connects to the Run and Dialog servers is configured in the eloq.ini configuration file.

Customization of the eloq.ini file

The eloq.ini configuration file is located in the /etc/opt/eloquence6 directory.

The installation program does not overwrite an existing configuration file but installs the /opt/eloquence6/newconfig/config/eloq.ini file instead.

The 'ini' File format

The eloq.ini and eloqcl.ini files contain several sections each containing a group of related configuration items. The sections and configuration items have the following format:

Section is the name of a section. The enclosing brackets ([ ]) are required and they must start at the first column. Item=Value defines a value of a configuration item. Item is the name of a configuration item. It consists of any sequence of characters (case insensitive) and digits followed by an assignment operator (=). Depending on the item type, the value may either be numeric or alphanumeric (optionally enclosed in double quotes). Comment lines must start with a semicolon (;) or a hash character (#) in the first column.
