How can we help you?



The PATH environment variable contains a list of all directories that contain executable programs. As a minimum, this should contain the shell default values plus the path of the jBASE bin directory (i.e. $JBCRELEASEDIR/bin on unix, %JBCRELEASEDIR%\bin on Windows) so that jBASE commands are seen by the shell. You will also wish to explicitly add the path of your application executable directory (such as ${HOME}/bin).


Any directory the user has privileges for.


The default depends entirely upon your system and how it has been set up.


Normal environment variable, so it can be set at any time by the commands:


export PATH=$PATH:$JBCRELEASEDIR/bin:/apps/bin


set PATH=%PATH%;%JBCRELEASEDIR%/bin;C:\apps\bin


If you receive a Windows warning that your path is too long then see this page.
