  [linux] Extending the expired beta.23 release (Message 1 to 3 of 3)

Similarly to the POVWIN beta 23 release, the package for Linux can be
extended over the expiration date by up to one week at a time:

1) run  ./povray --betacode  to obtain a time-limited code (integer value)
2) set the environment variable POVRAY_BETA with this code
3) repeat when the current code doesn't work anymore.

	This weekly extension will work up to one year after the initial
expiration date (here Nov. 30th).

Hi,

Just a dumb question, but how exactly do you set the env variable ?
I have tried :
export POVRAY_BETA=${1495134191}
and
export POVRAY_BETA=1495134191
as user but none of the two work.

Thanks,

Fabien

	It's that one.
	And for csh-like shells: setenv POVRAY_BETA thebetacodevalue

	The beta codes are time-limited, so be sure to enter the current one.
	If that still does not work, the other option is to compile from sources  :-)
