Configuration files are text files, with one option per line. Options are specified by a keyword followed by arguments. e.g.:
	Walls front left
tells the library to run two display processes, one for the front wall and one for the left wall.

Significant options are:

The option "Simulator y" is a special shortcut which sets several different options for "full simulator" mode.

CAVEConfigure() prints out the final configuration data after reading all the files. The amount of information printed is controlled by the environment variable CAVEDEBUGCONFIG. The default is a brief summary; set CAVEDEBUGCONFIG to "full" for a complete output of all options that will be used, or to "off" to disable the output.
