NAME

SVK::Help::Environment - A list of svk's environment variables

DESCRIPTION

A number of system environment variables influence how svk runs. Below is a complete list of variables you can use to alter svk's behavior.

All Platforms

$SVKROOT

Unless you tell it otherwise, svk stores your configuration and repository in $HOME/.svk. If you set SVKROOT to a path on disk, svk will look there instead of in $HOME/.svk.

$SVN_EDITOR / $EDITOR

Sometimes, svk needs to pop up a text editor. svk first tries to launch the editor specified in $SVN_EDITOR and falls back to $EDITOR if that's not defined.

$SVKDIFF

If you'd prefer to use an external "diff" tool instead of svk's builtin diff library, set this variable to your tool's name or path.

$SVKMERGE

svk lets you resolve conflicts, interactively, with a text editor or use an external diff tool. Out of the box, svk comes with support for the following merge tools:

 AraxisMerge
 Emacs
 FileMerge
 GtkDiff
 Guiffy
 GVim
 KDiff3
 Meld
 P4WinMerge
 TkDiff
 TortoiseMerge
 Vim
 XXDiff

If you want svk to spawn a specific merge tool, set this variable to the tool's name.

$SVKRESOLVE

If you set this variable, svk's interactive resolver will always perform the command it's set to. For more details about the commands available in svk's interactive resolver, type perldoc SVK::Resolve.

$SVKPAGER / $PAGER

When svk needs to pipe long output through a pager, it first tries to use $SVKPAGER to send the output to your display. If that's not set, it falls back to $PAGER

$SVKPGP

svk supports signing and verifying changesets using the Gnu Privacy Guard. By default, svk tries to run the first program called gpg in your path. To tell svk to use a specific gpg executable, set this variable to the executable's name or path.

$SVNFSTYPE

By default, svk creates its local repository as a fsfs repository when running on Subversion 1.1 and newer. On Subversion 1.0, SVK defaults to bdb. To explicitly specify a repository type, set this variable to fsfs or bdb.

$SVKNOSVM

To be able to talk to a remote Subversion server, svk needs the SVN::Mirror perl package installed. If you have SVN::Mirror installed, but want svk to operate as if you didn't, set $SVKNOSVM to a true value.

Win32

These variables only apply to svk on Windows.

$ProgramFiles

Set this variable to the directory you install programs into. It defaults to 'C:\Program Files'.
