Gap4 file accessing is generally done by looking for files in the current directory. In dialogues specifying filenames, full pathnames can be specified, however for reasons of tidyness it is generally desirable to keep files specific to a particular project in the same directory as that project. Creating new databases and opening new databases will change directory to the directory containing the opened project.
It is possible to change the current directory by selecting "Change directory"
from the File menu. Be warned that changing to a directory other than that
containing the database and the trace files may mean that the trace files
cannot be found. The
RAWDATA environment variable can be set to point
to a colon separated list of directories in which to search for trace files.
