User your shared Evernote folder to share a document with me that describes how to create an environment variable called ELF_TEMPLATES.
Sign into Evernote
Create a new note in the Evernote folder you shared with me.
- Title: DosAlias Templates
- Tags: bc, prog219, setup, dosalias
- Content: Document the steps involved in creating the %ELF_TEMPLATES% environment variable.
When you are done, I want to be able to open up Evernote and see that you have:
- Create the note
- Titled and tagged it correctly
- Enter a reasonably complete description of how to follow the steps for creating %ELF_TEMPLATES%
NOTE: I wish the name ELF_TEMPLATES were shorter. I’m not using TEMPLATES because it seems too generic, too likely to be used by some other program. I want to be sure the variable is unique.
Open up %USERPROFILE%\Bin\DosAlias.bat in your editor of choice.
Be sure it contains the following lines near the top:
set GITDIR=%USERPROFILE%\Git set JSOBJECTS=%GITDIR%\JsObjects set ELF_TEMPLATES=%JSOBJECTS%\Utilities\Templates
Save your work. At the command line run dosalias.
Check Your Work
At the command line type the following and confirm that it returns valid output.
echo %GITDIR% echo %JSOBJECTS% echo %ELF_TEMPLATES%
Paste the output from the above commands into Evernote. For instance, on my system, the output from the last of the three commands looks like this:
>echo %ELF_TEMPLATES% C:\Src\Git\JsObjects\Utilities\Templates
This will likely look different on your system, but it should be clear what I want.
