This variable should be used if you require the use of a MD or VOC file to hold Q pointers, jCL programs, paragraphs or entries for jQL (jBASE Query Language). If you have loaded an account-save into your home directory then you might wish to set this variable. This will then allow you to:
- Execute jCL programs and paragraphs directly from the MD/VOC (using jsh or EXECUTE/CHAIN etc.)
- Support Q-pointers and F-pointers in the MD/VOC file (may need JEDIFILENAME_SYSTEM)
- On systems with 14 char filename limits, create cross reference items for executables from the original name to the new name.
Valid file path. While it is not required, it is strongly advised that this value be set to the complete path of the MD and not a relative path (as an example, /home/MD]D should be used instead of ./MD]D).
As per normal environment variable, so it can be set at any time by the commands:
