DESCRIPTION
       MBK_CATA_LIB sets the directories that are to be searched thru for
       reading. When instanciating a cell for example, the first cell that is
       found with the given name is loaded in memory.
       The seaching mecanism first look in MBK_WORK_LIB(1), and then, in path1
       thru pathn, in the order defined by the user when typing the setenv
       command.  This directories are considered to be, from a mbk point of
       view, read only.
       The pathi arguments must be actually accessible pathes on your host
       machine.

ERRORS
       "mbk_fopen : can't open file 'unix_path/file.xx' thru directories :
       path1, ..., pathn"
              This occurs when either the unix path is irrelevent, or when the
              file doesn't exist. This can also be a unix right problem if the
              file is not accessible for reading, but this is seldom.

EXAMPLE
            setenv MBK_CATA_LIB ~fred/crechan/uom:/labo/sclib

DIAGNOSTICS
       Only the first path may be given with a '~', since the shell extents it
       only when seen first.

SEE ALSO
       mbk(3), genlib(1), MBK_WORK_LIB(1).
