4. Configuration Files

Player needs to know where and how your devices are connected/configured. For example, if you are controlling a SICK LMS laser, then Player needs to know to which serial port the laser is connected. The configuration file is used to tell Player this information.

By convention, configuraton files for Player have the extension .cfg. Some example configuraton files are included in the distribution; they are installed in the subdirectory config.
