This page is linked from the [[Getting Started]] Section.
The options listed on this page influence the way how database [[Commands|commands]] are executed and XQuery expressions are evaluated. Options are divided intoTwo kinds of options exist:
* [[#Global Options|'''global options''']], which are valid for all BaseX instances, and;* '''local Local options''', which (all remaining ones) are specific to a client or session.
Values of options are either ''strings'', ''numbers'' or ''booleans''.
Various ways exist to access and change options:
* The current value of an option can be requested with the {{Command|GET}} command. Local options can be changed via {{Command|SET}}(all global options, except for {{Options|DEBUG}}, can only be changed at startup time). All values are ''static'': They stay valid until they are changed once again by another operation. If an option is of type ''boolean'', and if no value is specified, its current value will be inverted.
* The {{Code|.basex}} [[Configuration#Configuration Files|configuration file]] is parsed by every new local BaseX instance. It contains all global options. Local options can be specified at the end of the file after the "Local Options" comment:
