You can use the System Defaults Manager located in the System directory of the SCOadmin hierarchy to change a variety of defaults associated with system utilities. The System Defaults Manager displays a list that describes the function and the associated utility or application. Use the manual page reference in the description to obtain information about the defaults stored in the file.
To edit a default file, select the file from the list. When used in character mode, the vi(C) editor is used by default. For graphical sessions, another editor can be selected; see ``Changing the default editor''.
The file editor used by applications such as the System Defaults Manager can be defined in the EDITOR environment variable. Set the variable on the command line as in these examples:
Bourne or Korn shell:
EDITOR=/usr/bin/X11/scoedit; export EDITOR
setenv EDITOR /usr/bin/X11/scoedit
You can also add EDITOR to your shell initialization file. For the C shell, simply add the above line to your .login or .cshrc file. For the Bourne or Korn shells, you need to add the bold elements to your .profile file:
SHELL=/bin/sh HOME=/ PATH=/bin:/etc:/usr/bin:/tcb/bin
# set terminal type eval `tset -m ansi:ansi -m :\?ansi -e -s -Q`
export TERM PATH SHELL HOME
