foot - configuration file
*foot* uses the standard _unix configuration format_, with section based
key/value pairs. The default section is unnamed (i.e. not prefixed
with a _[section]_).
foot will search for a configuration file in the following locations,
in this order:
- _XDG_CONFIG_HOME/footrc_
- _~/.config/footrc_

The first font is the primary font. The remaining fonts are

list of font name and font options.
