.login or .profile (depending on the shell you are using). If you
use the Bourne shell, the following two statements would be placed in
your .profile file.
If you are using the c shell, the following is appropriate and could
be placed in your .login file.
Replace AbCd34xxxxx with the PSKEY supplied by firstname.lastname@example.org.
- There are a number of other environment variables, that you
may wish to set. These are documented in "P-STAT: Introductory

The helpfile is available in both plain text and in html for
use in a browser. "pstat.help" is the text helpfile which is
accessed when you enter HELP $ from the command line.
To access the help files in your browser move to the
