Autosign utilizes signrc to sign, remove and list signed/un-signed files. The meaning of options is as follows.

  • ext tells the utilities to look for files with only that extension

  • Start defines the starting character sequence of a signature

  • line defines the character sequence with whice every line(except start and end) should start of a valid signature

  • end defines the ending character sequence of a signature

  • blank (boolean) allows/forbids usage of blank line before start or after end of a signature

  • allow defines a special regular expression. Matching to which a line can be allowed before the start of a signature.

Examples can be seen in examples directory. All the python files in this package have been signed using examples/templates/template1.txt using examples/signrc/signrc_py.

  • –init option can be used for generating a very basic signrc

  • All the utilities look for .signrc first in cwd, then in home directory by default.
