+## RC files
+You can use an RC file to automatically run any sequence of valid AV-98
+commands upon start up. This can be used to make settings controlled with the
+`set` or `handler` commanders persistent. You can also put a `go` command in
+your RC file to visit a "homepage" automatically on startup, or to pre-prepare
+a `tour` of your favourite Gemini sites.
+The RC file should be called `av98rc`. AV-98 will look for it first in
+`~/.av98/` and second in `~/.config/av98/`. Note that either directory might
+already exist even if you haven't created it manually, as AV-98 will, if
+necessary, create the directory itself the first time you save a bookmark (the
+bookmark file is saved in the same location). AV-98 will create
+`~/.config/av98` only if `~/.config/` already exists on your system, otherwise
+it will create `~/.av98/`.
