 nlspath(4)                                                       nlspath(4)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      nlspath - NLSPATH configuration file

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The file /etc/default/nlspath allows the superuser to restrict the
      paths set by others through an environment variable NLSPATH to locate
      message catalogs for setuid or setgid root programs.

      This file contains only one entry with the following format:


      pseudo-pathnames must be separated by a colon.  The paths which are
      available both in the configuration file /etc/default/nlspath and
      environment variable NLSPATH are considered to locate message catalog
      files.  The /etc/default/nlspath file should not be edited directly.
      Instead, the command chnlspath should be used to modify the contents
      of this file.  See chnlspath(1M) for details.

      If /etc/default/nlspath contains NLSPATH=*, the file is in
      compatibility mode.  In this case, all setuid and setgid root programs
      use the environment variable NLSPATH directly to locate message
      catalogs.  This configuration file is supported only to provide
      backward compatibility for those setuid or setgid root programs which
      are depending on the environment variable NLSPATH.  New setuid or
      setgid root programs should not depend on the environment variable
      NLSPATH and configuration file /etc/default/nlspath.  See catopen(3C)
      for details.

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      The configuration file must be root owned and there should not be
      write permission set for group and others.  Superuser should not
      provide write permission for group and others for the paths mentioned
      in the configuration file.
