Hi,

In an .scr file, I noticed the following line:

set_attribute lib_search_path {. ../LIBRARY/LIBS/ } /

what does the single dot mean at the beginning of the brackets?

Thanks.

What kind of scr file? AFAIK .scr is a screensaver executable file which is not plaintext, so what is your scr for?

like jimkeith says it's probably a pathname, the dot (.) is the current working directory usually and two dots (..) is the parent directory. I imagine that's just saying check this directory and also ../library/libs

The brackets are a search path for the libraries.

. means the current directory, it can also be listed as ./

The line tells the compiler to use libraries from the current directory first, and if not found, check the next path.
