General Parameters

Side information files can contain the following platform-independent parameters:

To reduce configuration work, you can define default entries under DEST=COMMON_PART. All entries that you define under this "destination" are default values for the remaining side info entries.

If an entry is missing for a destination, the default entry is assumed, provided a default entry has been defined under DEST=COMMON_PART.
