qsetpath -- Set parameters of Quintus utilities and runtime applications


     qsetpath [ -aadd-ons ] [ -rruntime-directory ]
         [ -qquintus-directory ] [ -hhost-type ]
               [ -bbanner-message ] filename ...


qsetpath sets parameters for the executable files. The executable files specified must be Quintus Prolog utilities, such as qpc and qld, runtime applications built using the Quintus Prolog Runtime Generator, prolog(1), or executables generated with qld(1). There are five settable paths, add-ons string, runtime-directory, quintus-directory, host-type and banner message. add-ons string identifies the Quintus add-on products that are included in the executable. runtime-directory and quintus-directory are used in the executable to find certain files relative to those paths. host-type identifies the platform of the installation. banner message is the banner displayed upon the start-up of the executable. The paths except banner message can be obtained through prolog command prolog_flag(path flag, Variable) where path flag is add_ons for add-ons string, runtime_directory for runtime-directory, quintus_directory for quintus-directory, and host_type for host-type.


Set the add-ons identification string of the specified executables to add-ons.
Set the runtime-directory of the specified executables to runtime-directory. The specified runtime-directory must be an absolute filename.
Set the quintus-directory of the specified executables to quintus-directory. The specified quintus-directory must be an absolute filename.
Set the host-type of the specified executables to host-type. There must be a / preceding host-type. A host-type should be in the form of machine-type or machine-type-OS-version,
Set the displayed banner message for the specified executables to banner-message.


Setting banner message has partial or no effects on certain executables.

Argument specification must following the option immediately. There is no white space allowed between an option and its argument.
