I'm having some trouble installing Kaffe on Unix BSDi. I need to know the exact settings
of the environment variables CLASSPATH, KAFFEHOME, PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The
contents of the ENVIRONMENT file generated during installation is as follows:
export CLASSPATH KAFFEHOME LD_LIBRARY_PATH PATH
What is supposed to do? I would like to know a couple of things:
1. What shell do I need to be running (e.g., sh, csh, tcsh, etc)?
2. How do I set the environment variables (set or setenv)? What is the syntax that must
3. What does the line 'export ...' mean?
4. What should be the setting for LD_LIBRARY_PATH?
Thanks a lot.
