9.1i PAR Turns Engine - Error: "XILINX is not an identifier"


When I use the Turns Engine, remote nodes are not able to run PAR and return errors, including:

XILINX is not an identifier.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not an identifier.

PATH is not an identifier.


In the environment setup script, the environment variables are set up as follows:

export XILINX=/usr/local/xilinx

export PATH=$XILINX/bin/sol

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$XILINX/bin/sol

While BASH and KSH support this shortcut for creating and exporting environment variables, the Bourne shell does not. The Bourne shell is used to run the environment setup script, so the syntax above is invalid.

Please see (Xilinx Answer 12449) for an example.
