Question How can I do some modification to my initialized "env" environment variable?


Hi all,

In fact, I just wanna know which config file stores the output information ,
what I see when I type "env". So that I could make some changes to my
original environment.

well no file in particular stores it, it's a bunch of settings that get set by different scripts and programs. I think the best place to set a system wide variable is to add it to the end of /etc/bashrc (assuming you're using bash of course) just add

export VARNAME=value

and that's all there is to it. but like i said, each variable is set by different scripts.

.bash_profile is where you'd find your global variables.

Things like PATH, JAVA_HOME and so on..
