LD_LIBRARY_PATH – Just Say No

Rod Evans, July 10, 2004

A recent email discussion reminded me of how fragile, and prevalent, LD_LIBRARY_PATH use is. Within a development environment, this variable is very useful. I use it all the time to experiment with new libraries. But within a production environment, use of this environment variable can be problematic. See Directories Searched by the Runtime Linker for an overview of LD_LIBRARY_PATH use at runtime.
