Importing environment variables into bash scripts


Hello Hello!
Quick question- is there any good way to import environment variables into scripts? I tried running this script:
Code:
import BUCKET_NAME

echo $BUCKET_NAME
When I ran the script, it gave me a strange cross-shaped cursor and hung up. When I clicked anywhere, it stopped hanging and actually echoed the correct string. I can find tons of articles about exporting variables and the parent/child shell environment variable relationship, but nothing about scripts really. Any thoughts?

Cheers,
Jarrod

If you are just running it as a script and you are useing bash then these variables should already be there. when i run a bash script I don't have to "import" anything to get my variables.
