There exist several environment variables concerning with an execution of Asir. On UNIX, an environment variable is set from shells, or in rc files of shells. On Windows NT, it can be set from [Control Panel] ->[Environment]. On Windows 95/98, it can be set in `c:\autoexec.bat'. Note that the setting takes effect after rebooting the machine on Windows 95/98.
ASIR_KEYAsir shall not work unless a
keyfor the machine on which Asir is invoked is given. The
keyconsists of a string which denotes 3 word hexadecimal number, each of which has 8 hexadecimal digits. In order to run Asir for several machines, several
key's can be written together on a same file as follows.
% cat asir_key cf6f236c 61a35091 dddc4529 geisha 82281685 d1929945 a8bd24ca yorktown 34b75d30 63f8df93 3e881113 nyanchuThe text after each
keyis neglected to the end-of-line. This is convenient to comment on the respective
key. Files containing
key's are searched by the following order.
ASIR_LIBDIR. (File `asir_key' on `/usr/local/lib/asir/', if environment
ASIR_LIBDIRis not set.)
ASIR_LIBDIRThe library directory of Asir, i.e., the directory where , for example, files containing programs written in Asir. If not specified, on UNIX, `/usr/local/lib/asir' is used by default. On Windows, `lib' in Asir root directory is used by default. This environment will be useful in a case where Asir binaries are installed on a private directory of the user.
ASIRLOADPATHThis environment specifies directories which contains files to be loaded by Asir command
load(). Directories are separated by a `:' on UNIX, a ';' on Windows respectively. The search order is from the left to the right. After searching out all directories in
ASIRLOADPATH, or in case of no specification at all, the library directory will be searched.
HOMEIf Asir is invoked without -norc, `$HOME/.asirrc', if exists, is executed. If
HOMEis not set, nothing is done on UNIX. On Windows, `.asirrc' in Asir root directory is executed if it exists.
