40    .SH ENVIRONMENT
41    
42    A number of environment variables are available for \fBascend\fR:
43    
44    ASCENDLIBRARY          
45      Path to ASCEND model files and external libraries.
46    
47    ASCENDSOLVERS
48      Path to ASCEND solvers. When searching for solvers, this path
49      variable is used first, then ASCENDLIBRARY is searched next as
50      a fallack, and in order to allow users to use solvers stored in
51      their user-configured model folder.
52    
53    CONOPT_PATH
54      Path to libconsub3.so, if you have it. Usually defaults to /usr/lib if
55      not defined.
56    
57    .SH USER SETTINGS
58    
59    ASCEND's PyGTK GUI uses a file ~/.ascend.ini to set and store user
60    preferences. This file includes a setting for the value of ASCENDLIBRARY
61    that is used if the variable is not present in the environment.
62    
63    Also kept in the .ascend.ini file are details about preferred units of
64    measurement, and the most recent File..Open path, and the current
65    Solver selection. More things will be stored in .ascend.ini over time.
