Environment

The following environment variables change the behaviour of csi:

CSI_OPTIONS

When set to a string of command-line options, then the options are passed implicitly to every direct or indirect invocation of csi. Note that runtime options of the form ‘-:⟨OPTIONS⟩’ cannot be passed using this method.

CHICKEN_INCLUDE_PATH

Contains one or more pathnames where the interpreter should also look for include files, separated by ‘;’ characters.

Exit Status

The csi utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
