PROJ can be controlled by setting environment variables. Most users will
have a use for the
On UNIX systems environment variables can be set for a shell-session with:
$ export VAR="some variable"
or it can be set for just one command line call:
$ VAR="some variable" ./cmd
Environment variables on UNIX are usually removed with the
$ unset VAR
On windows systems environment variables can be set in the command line with:
> set VAR="some variable"
`VAR will be available for the entire session, unless it is unset. This is
done by setting the variable with no content:
> set VAR=
The location of PROJ resource files.
Starting with PROJ 6, multiple directories can be specified. On Unix, they should be separated by the colon (:) character. on Windows, by the semi-colon (;) character.
PROJ is hardcoded to look for resource files in other locations as well, amongst those are the users home directory,
/usr/share/projand the current folder.
You can also set the location of the resource files using
proj_context_set_search_paths()in the proj.h API header.
Changed in version 6.1.0: Starting with PROJ version 6.1.0, the paths set by
proj_context_set_search_paths() will have priority over the
PROJ_LIB to allow for mutliple versions of PROJ
resource files on your system without conflicting.
Set the debug level of PROJ. The default debug level is zero, which results in no debug output when using PROJ. A number from 1-3, whit 3 being the most verbose setting.
