Introduction

Gap4 contains a separate menu for configuring the global behaviour of options. However currently not all configurable parameters are available to be adjusted from within this menu. The main configuration of Gap4 comes from the .gaprc file which specifies all the default and startup values to the dialogues. Other programs, such as Sip4 and Nip4 and their own configuration files named .siprc and .niprc. Configurations common to all programs are typically held in .tk_utilsrc.

Additionally, we describe here the window for configuring colours. This window is common to several locations within Gap4 including the Contig Comparator and the Restriction Enzyme Map.
