MBK_CATA_LIB.1alc man page

MBK_CATA_LIB ā€” define the mbk catalog directory

Synopsis

c-shell running
setenv MBK_CATA_LIB path1:path2:path3:...:...:pathn

Description

MBK_CATA_LIB sets the directories that are to be searched thru for reading. When instantiating a cell for example, the first cell that is found with the given name is loaded in memory.
The searching mechanism 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 paths 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 irrelevant, 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.
