Set Command Line Environment

You need to have your shell command line environment set properly in order to use FlowTracer.

This includes changing your PATH environment variable so you can run the installed executables, and adding two environment variables that are used by the Altair Accelerator programs.

You can set your command line environment by sourcing a setup file created by the installation. You will source the setup file that matches your platform and shell.

Assuming that FlowTracer is installed at the path /opt/rtda/<release>, this table shows the way to source the setup file so that your runtime shell environment is right.
Platform Type Shell Command to Source File
UNIX csh tcsh source /opt/rtda/<release>/common/etc/vovrc.csh
bash sh ksh zsh . /opt/rtda/<release>/common/etc/
Windows DOS c:\rtda\<release>\win64\bat\vovinit.bat
