Customizing the default InfoPrint SMIT production print interface environment file

The default InfoPrint SMIT production print interface environment file is ppo.env, which InfoPrint stores in the /usr/lpp/pd/bin directory during installation. The ppo.env file contains a series of export statements for environment variables that specify information about your InfoPrint system. InfoPrint bases the setting of some environment-variable values on objects that are created during installation. Other environment variables have no values; you can update them as you expand your InfoPrint system. Default environment file — InfoPrint SMIT production print interface shows the default environment file.
