# Alternative Dictionaries

In order to enable dictionary definition records from multiple dictionary files to be used without specifying the USING connective, an environment variable JBCDEFDICTS can be configured for multiple dictionary files.

export JBCDEFDICTS=UserDictFile:GeneralDictFile (UNIX)
1
set JBCDEFDICTS=CustomDictFile;GeneralDictFile (Windows)
1

The order in which the dictionaries are searched for dictionary definitions is as follows:

  1. Dictionary of the file being queried
  2. MD/VOC (see JEDIFILENAME_MD)
  3. Files specified by JBCDEFDICTS
