The eset command edits and sets an environment variable.

Command Format

eset [-t] name


-t set temporarily. Setting is not stored in non-volatile memory
name environment variable name is edited

Functional description

The eset command is used to edit a previously set environment variable value. Environment variables are normally stored in NVRAM. The -t switch can be used to not store the value in NVRAM. The variable will be lost when PMON2000 is restarted. This may be useful when a variable needs to be set but does not need to be saved.

The value of the given variable is displayed on the command line and the Shell line edit keys can be used to edit the value.

The eset command does not evaluate the specified value but check constrained variables against a list of allowed values. Value checking on other variables are only performed when a command uses a variable.

The maximum total length for a variable name and its value must be less than 255 characters.


The command changes the environment variables.
