ARB: a Short Introduction
ARB environment variables
Start a console
Starts a console window from ARB.
The shell in the console uses the same environment as the running arb session. From this environment you may call perl-scripts
delivered with ARB (e.g. in $ARBHOME/PERL_SCRIPTS) or
your own scripts.
The main reason for the execution environment is the ability to easily access the database currently loaded into ARB.
The console window is started in the same way as done to call external tools (like RAxML).
See ARB_XTERM in
´ARB environment variables´
to customize the way arb starts consoles.
