Environment Variables

Environment variables are used to specify the execution environment for a process. Under OpenEdition, environment variables can be assigned in a number of ways:

Language Environment Runtime Options

_CEE_RUNOPTS can be used to pass Language Environment runtime options to a program started from the OMVS shell.

_CEEDUMP_DIR can be used to control where Language Environment CEEDUMP reports are stored. Otherwise, they will be stored in the current working directory if the current user has write access and it is not the HFS root (/). Otherwise, it will go to the temporary file directory, usually /tmp.

Time Zones

The TZ (Posix) or _TZ (non-Posix) environment variable is used to set time zone. If this is not set, UTC (formerly UTC) time may be provided.
