This name applies to the line-based SQL Terminal Monitor only. II_SQL_INIT points to SET statements within a file that are executed whenever this Vector environment variable takes effect.
II_SQL_INIT affects users who connect to the SQL Terminal Monitor. If set globally, it affects all users. If set interactively or locally, it affects only this user.
Global setting is with ingsetenv, or locally in the user’s .login, .profile or .cshrc file
Setting this environment variable is equivalent to executing \i filename in the SQL Terminal Monitor each time you connect to a database.
To define II_SQL_INIT
Use the following command syntax at the operating system prompt:
II_SQL_INIT=path_to_file export II_SQL_INIT
For example:
II_SQL_INIT=/usr/george/mystartfile export II_SQL_INIT
The file contains lines in the following format:
Multiple SET statements must be separated with a semicolon (;). The entire file must end with “\g”.
