Events File Locations

The location of events files depends on the operating system.

Microsoft Windows

The user events file is stored at:

C:\Documents and Settings\<em>user</em>\Application Data\bday.txt

Where “user” is the user’s log in ID.

The system events file is stored at:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\bday.txt

A third events file is also available in Microsoft Windows, the application events file. It is stored in the same folder as the bday.exe program (usually “C:\Program Files\bday”.)

Linux

The user events file is stored the user’s home directory:

~/.bdayrc

The system events file is stored at:

/etc/bdayrc

Note that BDay also creates the directory “~/.bday” to hold certain application properties.

Including Other Event Files

You can include another events file by entering the following line in one of the above include files:

include filename

Where “filename” is the full path and name of the file to be included.
