Environment Variables ( or something similar )
Is there a way to set an env var from one shell in such a way that it is then also "set" (i.e. available, visible, usable, etc.) in another shell?
In other words:
1) open shell 1, (perhaps through gnome-terminal)
2) open shell 2, (same)
3) go to shell 1 and (somehow) set myvar="hello"
4) go to shell 2 and echo myvar
5) see "hello" echoed.
export does not do this.
