runs before and is neither shadowed nor superceded by .owl/startup.

    37 Specify an alternate config file for \fBBarnOwl\fP to use.  By default,
    38 \fBBarnOwl\fP uses \fI~/.barnowlconf\fP if it exists, and \fI~/.owlconf\fP otherwise.
     37Specify an alternate config file for \fBBarnOwl\fP to use.  The config file is
     38an arbitrary Perl script evaluated in the \fImain\fP package, and if it
     39overrides the \fIBarnOwl::startup\fP method that is run when \fBBarnOwl\fP
     40starts.  (Compare \fI~/.owl/startup\fP, which contains \fBBarnOwl\fP commands
     41that are run at startup after the config file is loaded.)
     42
     43By default, \fBBarnOwl\fP uses the first of \fI~/.owl/init.pl\fP,
     44\fI~/.barnowlconf\fP, or \fI~/.owlconf\fP that exists.
