4.3.3 Using environment variables in filepaths

Environment variables in filepaths enable switching to new repository versions without modifying the project.

For example, using $(PVLIB_HOME)/etc/sglib.sgrepo as the reference to the components of the Fast Models Portfolio enables migration to future versions of the library by modifying environment variable PVLIB_HOME.


On Microsoft Windows, Unix syntax is valid for environment variables and paths, for example $PVLIB_HOME/etc/my.sgrepo.
Edit a filepath through the File Properties dialog:


  1. Select the file and click select Properties from the context menu.
  2. Edit the File entry to modify the filepath.
