*LD_LIBRARY_PATH on HP-UX IPF, AIX 5.2 and later, Linux, and Oracle Solaris

In the following examples, LD_LIBRARY_PATH is being set to point to the location of shared libraries for an installation on /opt/odbc.
In the C shell, you would set this variable as follows:
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /opt/odbc/lib
In the Bourne or Korn shell, you would set it as:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/odbc/lib;export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
To verify that the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable has been set, execute the env command and review the output to confirm.
