       SVK::Help::Environment -	A list of svk's	environment variables

       A number	of system environment variables	influence how svk runs.	Below
       is a complete list of variables you can use to alter svk's behavior.

   All Platforms
	   Unless you tell it otherwise, svk stores your configuration and
	   repository in $HOME/.svk.  If you set SVKROOT to a path on disk,
	   svk will look there instead of in $HOME/.svk.

	   Sometimes, svk needs	to pop up a text editor. svk first tries to
	   launch the editor specified in $SVN_EDITOR and falls	back to
	   $EDITOR if that's not defined.

	   If you'd prefer to use an external "diff" tool instead of svk's
	   builtin diff	library, set this variable to your tool's name or

	   svk lets you	resolve	conflicts, interactively, with a text editor
	   or use an external diff tool.  Out of the box, svk comes with
	   support for the following merge tools:


	   If you want svk to spawn a specific merge tool, set this variable
	   to the tool's name.

	   The lowest log level	that svk will present to the user. The log
	   levels are: DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR	and FATAL. The default log
	   level is INFO; this includes	progress messages for long-running
	   commands (such as sync). For	non-interactive	use (such as for cron
	   jobs) it might be useful to set $SVKLOGLEVEL	to WARN.

	   If you set this variable, svk's interactive resolver	will always
	   perform the command it's set	to. For	more details about the
	   commands available in svk's interactive resolver, type "perldoc

	   Indicates which module is used for automatically detecting the MIME
	   types of files.  Implementations included with core SVK are:
	   "File::LibMagic", "File::MMagic", "File::Type" and "Internal".  The
	   value "Internal" means to use SVK's own internal MIME detection
	   algorithm which requires no external	modules.  This poor, but fast
	   algorithm simply assigns "application/octet-stream" to anything
	   that	looks binary.  If $SVKMIME has no value, "Internal" is used.

	   When	svk needs to pipe long output through a	pager, it uses
	   $SVKPAGER to	send the output	to your	display.  If this variable is
	   not set or set to something that's not executable, the output will
	   not be paged.  svk ignores your $PAGER setting, so you must
	   explicitly set $SVKPAGER if you want	paging.

	   By specifying this variable,	you change the default output filter
	   used	by the "svk log" command.  The value of	this variable can be
	   anything that you can pass to "svk log"'s "--output"	option.

	   When	you set	this variable to a true	value, SVK should never	prompt
	   the user for	an interactive response.

	   By default, svk creates its local repository	as a fsfs repository
	   when	running	on Subversion 1.1 and newer. On	Subversion 1.0,	SVK
	   defaults to bdb.  To	explicitly specify a repository	type, set this
	   variable to fsfs or bdb.

	   By default, svk tries to make use of	the replay api provided	by
	   Subversion if available.  You can turn this environment variable on
	   to tell svk not to do so.  svk will then use	the old	"SVN::Mirror"
	   module to do	mirroring.

	   (For	debugging use only.) If	this environment variable is set to a
	   true	value, any error message which comes from the Subversion
	   libraries will be accompanied by a stack backtrace.

	   svk supports	the verification of historical changesets using	the
	   Gnu Privacy Guard. Note that	SVK no longer allows users to sign new
	   changesets.	By default, svk	tries to run the first program called
	   gpg in your path. To	tell svk to use	a specific gpg executable, set
	   this	variable to the	executable's name or path.

       These variables only apply to svk on Windows.

	   Set this variable to	the directory you install programs into. It
	   defaults to 'C:\Program Files'.
