How to allow exported value be reflected in all xterm shells?

I have two xterm shells (bash). In the first xterm shell, I did a export=HTTP_PROXY= However, when I did a echo $HTTP_PROXY in the second xterm shell, the assigned value is not reflected. So for now, if I want to do a http transfer (which requires a proxy setting), I would need to re-export the HTTP_PROXY value.

Is there any way to allow all instances of the xterm shells to have the assigned value?

Thanks !

If you want it to always be present in every shell you can put the command in your ~/.bash_profile.
