env variable


I want to check the value of an environment variable in a bash shell.

if i do an 'env' command, that gives me all of them.
I would like to be able to check just one, something like:

#env LD_LIBRARY_PATH
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/one/two/three

How can I do this?

Maybe:

# env | grep LD_LIBRARY_PATH

I think there is a better way to do this but I can't think of it off the top of my head.
