kw (g | config) [(-g | –global)] <config.option value>
kw (g | config) [(-l | –local)] <config.option value>


The kw config feature is an interface to manipulate the configuration files used by kw. This option provides a local and global reference, and it follows the following syntax to identify the target configuration:

<config file name>.<valid option for specific config file> <value>


-g, –global:

Set the <config.option value> to the global configuration.

-l, –local:

This is the default option, and it sets <config.option value> to the local configuration.
