       fishd - universal variable daemon

       fishd [(-h|--help|-v|--version)]

       The fishd daemon is used to load, save and distribute universal
       variable information. fish automatically connects to fishd via a socket
       on startup. If no instance of fishd is running, fish spawns a new fishd
       instance. fishd will create a socket in /tmp, and wait for incoming
       connections from universal variable clients, such as fish, When no
       clients are connected, fishd will automatically shut down.

       · -h or --help displays this help message and then exits

       · -v or --version displays the current fish version and then exits

       ~/.config/fish/fishd.HOSTNAME permanent storage location for universal
       variable data. The data is stored as a set of set and set_export
       commands such as would be parsed by fishd. The file must always be
       stored in ASCII format. If an instance of fishd is running (which is
       generally the case), manual modifications to ~/.fishd.HOSTNAME will be
       lost. Do NOT edit this file manually!

       /tmp/fishd.socket.USERNAME the socket which fishd uses to communicate
       with all clients.

       /tmp/fishd.log.USERNAME the fishd log file
