Hi,
What is this environment variable used for? I've seen it being used in some server start up scripts (eg. WebSphere). If any one could explain this, I would be thankful.

Hi - It is used to specify the directories which should be searched at runtime for shared library routines (these are roughly equivalent to Windows DLL's).
HTH, Guy
