(setenv variable value)

Set the operating system variable to that value.

This function sets the value of a specified operating system environment variable-for example, as stored by the DOS PATH variable.


  • If you give setenv a non-existent variable name, it creates that, and sets it. You can see the new variable name from within progeCAD's "shell" DOS window (created by the Shell command) but not from the Windows DOS window. Setenv creates the variable within progeCAD's application space.
  • When you enter ICAD or ACAD as the environment variable you want to set, the setenv function changes that to the SEARCHPATH variable and uses it normally.


Code Returns
(setenv "PATH" "C:\\;C:\\WIN95;C:\\ICAD") "C:\\;C:\\WIN95;C:\\ICAD"
