PATH

Description

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).

Values

Any directory the user has privileges for.


Default

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


Setting

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

Unix

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


Windows

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


Notes

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