Pearte has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Well I have a chunk of code that I didn't write: (endline)
setenv RAP_WP_TOP_DIR /jdev/morse/shared (endline)
setenv WP_DEFAULT_CONFIG_DIR /jdev/morse/shared/config/wp_default (endline)
setenv WP_LC_CONFIG_DIR /jdev/morse/shared/config/jnu_lc (endline)
setenv WP_ND_CONFIG_DIR /jdev/morse/shared/config/jnu_nd (endline)
setenv WP_SD_CONFIG_DIR /jdev/morse/shared/config/jnu_sd (endline)
I can only assume from the context that this is similar to
a filehandle and that these "filehandles" can be passed
between diffent scripts.
I have three questions:
One... Is this assumption correct?
Two... If so, what kind of rules regulate it's use? In other
words, what do I have to do to let these other scripts see it?
Three.. If my assumption is incorrect, what is this all about?
PS- I checked two O'Reilly's, no dice.
PPS- I would love to know who to format text in this silly box.
