lib:Env

See the current Perl documentation for lib:Env.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:


Env - perl module that imports environment variables



    use Env;
    use Env qw(PATH HOME TERM);



Perl maintains environment variables in a pseudo-hash named %ENV. For when this access method is inconvenient, the Perl module Env allows environment variables to be treated as simple variables.

The Env::import() function ties environment variables with suitable names to global Perl variables with the same names. By default it does so with all existing environment variables (keys %ENV). If the import function receives arguments, it takes them to be a list of environment variables to tie; it's okay if they don't yet exist.

After an environment variable is tied, merely use it like a normal variable. You may access its value

    @path = split(/:/, $PATH);

or modify it

    $PATH .= ":.";

however you'd like. To remove a tied environment variable from the environment, assign it the undefined value

    undef $PATH;

[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
[ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.

[1nickt]: ambrus perhaps you know where the keys are?
