Grammar Engineering Frequently Asked Questions

How can I tell [incr tsdb()] to start with the directories for "home" and "skeletons" that I want each time?

Create a file called .tsdbrc in your home directory. (Your general home directory, not your tsdb home directory.) In that file, put the following two lines:

(setf tsdb::*tsdb-home* "< tsdb home directory >") 
(setf tsdb::*tsdb-skeleton-directory*  "< skeleton directory >")

... with the desired directories filled in. .tsdbrc is read whenever you start up [incr tsdb()].

Note that if *tsdb-skeleton-directory* is not set to a legitimate skeletons directory (with Index.lisp and Relations) [incr tsdb()] gets unhappy, and can experience mysterious errors.
