Setting the IGNIS2 environment variable allows a file to be opened even though a matching .is2 file exists.

Value

Any value.

Discussion

When IGNIS2 is not set, an OPEN of an ISAM file fails if a file with the same name and the extension .is2 exists.

Important

The existence of an .is2 file may mean that the previous use of irecovr failed and that the contents of the file are invalid.

Setting location

The environment.

Used by

Runtime, compiler, fcompare, fconvert, isutl.

Examples

On UNIX,

IGNIS2=1     ;export IGNIS2
