files - summary of all special files, environment variables, programmers etc.


A number of files and environment variables are essential to certain operations in NEMO. They may sometimes conflict when a user has set up various other software packages. See also Appendix G.2 in the NEMO Users/Programmers Guide.

Also listed are the shorthands sometimes used for some of the known authors/contributors of NEMO software. They often go by cryptic three letter abreviations. The table here lists their full names.

Possible conflicts may occur when NEMO’s cc-compiler (cc(1NEMO) ) or make-shell script are used, or other packages happened to use the same environment variable for similar purposes.
