[ic] makecat variables

This is my first post.
I am having trouble understanding what needs to be done to configure
custom variables for makecat to use for my skeleton catalog when
creating a catalog.
I have in catalog.cfg inside my skeleton directory:
variable SCHOOL_NAME __MVC_SCHOOL_NAME_
In config/additional_fields i have:
Client schools name
In additional_help i have:
Enter the full name of the institution that this store will serve.
All that seems to make sense to me.
Now I put in products/variable.txt :
SCHOOL_NAME __MVC_SCHOOL_NAME__ Directories and Paths
I don't know if that syntax is correct because I couldn't find any docs
on it, I used other entries in that file as examples.
I read the manual page for makecat and it tries to explain the process a
little bit but I wasn't able to fully understand it. It says for me to
run a pre-qualifying script that set the environment variable
MVC_SCHOOL_NAME and then place in the catalog.cfg:
Variable SCHOOL_NAME __MVC_SCHOOL_NAME__
Where do I put this script? How do I call it? Anyone have any examples
of a script like this that I could use as reference?
Any help would be appreciated. If you know some docs that explain it
well I would appreciate that too.
Thanks in advance
