program in, for example, compiler upgrade scripts, where you can block the
upgrade if you see some critical alert.
$ p6lert --block-on=high
Str. Specifies the path to the configuration file to use. The file will be
created if it does not exist. The default config file location is
~/.p6lert.conf or, if
Nil, then in
$ p6lert --config=/home/meows/p6alerter
The config file contains a JSON object that currently only has
last-fetch-time property. This property stores information about the time
the program last fetched any alerts. Only fresh alerts since that time will
be displayed when program is executed.
Passing value of
--config will make the program ignore the config file loading
and it won't store
last-fetch-time, giving full list of alerts on each load.
$ p6lert --config=/dev/null
