Setting the environment on UNIX

If you have installed the product to a directory other than the default one, before you start developing applications with Visual COBOL for Eclipse on UNIX, you need to set the environment. We recommend that you use the cobsetenv script to do this:

. <product-install-dir>/bin/cobsetenv

Note that cobsetenv is only compatible with POSIX-like shells, such as bash, ksh, or XPG4 sh. It is not compatible with C-shell or pre-XPG4 Bourne shell.
