Setting environment-variables in Eclipse (EPIC)? [SOLVED]by sundialsvc4 (Abbot)
|on Mar 15, 2011 at 22:20 UTC||Need Help??|
sundialsvc4 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Now here’s a weird one for ya ... (Environment: OS/X Snow Leopard)
I’ve got a legacy Perl application which, in a BEGIN block, looks for a particular environment-variable. Therefore, a statement like use name_of_this_module; won’t succeed unless the environment variable exists.
And this prevents something that is “nice to have,” namely, Eclipse’s syntax-checking. That is, unless I can figure out a(n easy) way to define an environment variable either within Eclipse, or when Eclipse launches.
I have already put the appropriate export statements in the .profile shell-script...
This is, as I said, just a “nice to have,” but I idly wonder if it could easily be done ... y’know, without defining a shell-script to launch Eclipse. (Or, is that “The Way?”)
Edit: “Just Google It™” ...
Perhaps this “discovery” will be useful. (Note that you must install Apple's (free) “Developer Tools” in order to get the PList editor, although the format is “just XML ...”)
