For DBlib it's dbsetifile(), which you need to call before you call
For CTlib it's ct_config(), and setting the interface is even the
example in the manual:
$ret = ct_config($action, $property, $value, $type)
Calls ct_config() to change some basic parameter,
like the interfaces file location.
$action can be CS_SET or CS_GET.
$property is one of the properties that is set-
table via ct_config() (see your OpenClient man
page on ct_config() for a complete list).
$value is the input value if $action is CS_SET,
and the output value if $action is CS_GET.
$type is the data type of the property that is
being set or retrieved. It defaults to
CS_CHAR_TYPE, but should be set to CS_INT_TYPE if
an integer value (such as CS_NETIO) is being set
$ret is the return status of the ct_config() call.
$ret = ct_config(CS_SET, CS_IFILE, "/home/mpeppler/foo", CS_CHAR_TYPE);
$ret = ct_config(CS_GET, CS_IFILE, $out, CS_CHAR_TYPE);
print "$ret - $out\n"; #prints 1 - /home/mpeppler/foo
