The second method allows more advanced users to make more extensive changes
to the StageTools modules. Each module reads an initialization file from
the user's home directory when it starts up. For example, StageManager
~/.StageManager and executes it if it exists. These
initialization files are TCL files that can do pretty much anything you
want: they can set the default values for menu choices, change the
appearance of windows, even replace internal commands with customized
versions. See the section on user customization
for more information.
Finally, the third method makes it possible to perform system-wide customization. This will not usually be necessary, except perhaps to set the default fonts, sizes, etc. The other reason to make such changes is to specify the unix commands that will be used to convert image formats and to combine images into MPEG movies and animated GIF files. See customizing the external commands for more information.
