DESCRIPTIONThe kernel debugger contains an environment which contains a series of name-value pairs. Some environment variables are known to the various kernel debugger commands and have specific meaning to the command; such are enumerated on the respective reference material.
Arbitrary environment variables may be created and used with many commands (those which require an address-expression).
The env command is used to display the current environment.
The set command is used to alter an existing environment variable or establish a new environment variable.
LIMITATIONSThere is a compile-time limit of 33 environment variables.
There is a compile-time limit of 512 bytes (KDB_ENVBUFSIZE) of heap space available for new environment variables and for environment variables changed from their compile-time values.
ENVIRONMENTThese commands explicitly manipulate the environment.
USER SETTINGSYou can include "set" commands in kdb/kdb_cmds (see kdb.mm) to define your environment variables at kernel startup.
Display current environment settings.
