AccuRev User Preferences

Some accurev commands use AccuRev user preferences to control or modify their operation. User preferences can be supplied in either of these ways:

  • As a setting in your AccuRev user preferences file: preferences.xml in the .accurev subdirectory of your AccuRev home directory. You can use the AccuRev commands setpref and getpref to maintain the contents of this file.

  • As an environment variable.

If an environment variable has the same name as an entry in the user preferences file, accurev commands follow the environment variable and ignore the preference-file entry.

An alphabetical listing of these settings is provided in ENV_VARS.

Note that you can display a listing of all AccuRev environment variables when using the command line by typing:

accurev help ENV_VARS
