When working in clearcase, it would be very useful to set the title of the window to the view from which we are opening gvim.

This is very helpful for developers with more than one view and one project open at the same time.

let &titlestring = expand("$CLEARCASE_ROOT")
echo expand("$CLEARCASE_ROOT")


You must have done

set title

before setting the titlestring.

You don't need to expand environment variables in this context, so the following will also work:

let &titlestring = $CLEARCASE_ROOT
