After launching the CLI and loading a wallet, you can issue commands; a list of which is available from help and help all.

The help set command shows a listing of options which can be set with set <option-name> <option-value>, however, I can't figure out a way to get the current value of an option. A common pattern of just not specifying <option-value> does not work.

If these runtime values cannot be retrieved from within the CLI, where are they persisted on disk when they deviate from the default?


Just type set and hit return. That lists all the currently set values.

  • Can't believe I didn't try that. Now to figure out how to submit a PR for the CLI help...

  • @Dave Sure, but on *nix, at least I could grep the output to find the option I care about. No grep inside of the interactive wallet cli!
