MBK_CATA_LIB(1) MBK ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES MBK_CATA_LIB(1)

NAME

MBK_CATA_LIB - define the mbk catalog directory

SYNOPSYS

c-shell running
setenv MBK_CATA_LIB path1:path2:path3:...:...:pathn
 
See the file man1/alc_origin.1.
 

DESCRIPTION

MBK_CATA_LIB sets the directories that are to be searched thru for reading. When instanciating a cell for example, the first cell that is found with the given name is loaded in memory.
 
The seaching mecanism first look in MBK_WORK_LIB(1), and then, in path1 thru pathn, in the order defined by the user when typing the setenv command. This directories are considered to be, from a mbk point of view, read only.
 
The pathi arguments must be actually accessible pathes on your host machine.

ERRORS

"mbk_fopen : can't open file 'unix_path/file.xx' thru directories : path1, ..., pathn"
This occurs when either the unix path is irrelevent, or when the file doesn't exist. This can also be a unix right problem if the file is not accessible for reading, but this is seldom.

EXAMPLE

	setenv MBK_CATA_LIB ~fred/crechan/uom:/labo/sclib

DIAGNOSTICS

Only the first path may be given with a '~', since the shell extents it only when seen first.
