# Description

Sets the location of the jBASE error message file.

# Values

%JBCRELEASEDIR%\jbcmessages (Windows)

It must be set before jBASE is invoked.

# UNIX

export JBCERRFILE=/usr/globals/jBASEerrors

# Note

Setting this environment variable allows for more than one version of the messages displayed by jBASE. This could be desirable if it is desired to have different messages or different behavior when a an error is encountered, depending on the user.

For example, to prevent a program entering the debugger when an uninitialized variable is encountered, remove the ^WARNING^ string from the ZERO_USED message.
