    COBOL compiler: can not create temporary directory

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    After official approval Ex Libris has provided us with a hotfix that we now want to install on our server.
    But compiling the COBOL-source does not work:

    m201@/exlibris/aleph/a20_1/alephm/source/com> iprou com edit_lkr_text
    cob: can not create temporary directory /tmp?3?/cob1651
    iprou: com edit_lkr_text
    mv: cannot access edit_lkr_text.gnt

    Changing this line in $alephm_proc/aleph_cobopt has solved the problem:
    set TMPDIR=/exlibris/tmp
