What is an EXAMPLE file?
Many programs use example configuration files saved with the .example extension. Often, these files use the compound extension .conf.example. These files are templates from which users can create their own, customized configuration files.
For example, the IT data collection and analysis program Splunk includes several EXAMPLE files. These files contain real-world examples of how a user might configure Splunk, for specific preferences and use cases.
