       binfmt.d - Configure additional binary formats for executables at boot




       At boot, systemd-binfmt.service(8) reads configuration files from the
       above directories to register in the kernel additional binary formats
       for executables.

       Each file contains a list of binfmt_misc kernel binary format rules.
       Consult binfmt_misc.txt[1] for more information on registration of
       additional binary formats and how to write rules.

       Empty lines and lines beginning with ; and # are ignored. Note that
       this means you may not use ; and # as delimiter in binary format rules.

       Each configuration file shall be named in the style of program.conf.
       Files in /etc/ override files with the same name in /usr/lib/ and
       /run/. Files in /run/ override files with the same name in /usr/lib/.
       Packages should install their configuration files in /usr/lib/, files
       in /etc/ are reserved for the local administrator, who may use this
       logic to override the configuration files installed from vendor
       packages. All files are sorted by their filename in lexicographic
       order, regardless of which of the directories they reside in. If
       multiple files specify the same binary type name, the entry in the file
       with the lexicographically latest name will be applied.

       If the administrator wants to disable a configuration file supplied by
       the vendor, the recommended way is to place a symlink to /dev/null in
       /etc/binfmt.d/ bearing the same filename.

       Example 1. /etc/binfmt.d/wine.conf example:

	   # Start WINE on Windows executables

       systemd(1), systemd-binfmt.service(8), systemd-delta(1), wine(8)
