Programming :: Exporting Makefile Variables To $(shell) Environment?

May 12, 2010

I'm aware that one can export make variables to other makefiles; however, how does one export them to the environment of $(shell)? Take the example below:

export TEST
VARIABLE=$(shell echo $$TEST)
.PHONY: all

In this example, I might call make TEST=test. The goal is for $TEST to be available to the environment of the shell escape. This is because I need its value in a script which is called. For example:

VARIABLE=$(shell current solution is the following:VARIABLE=$(shell export TEST="$(TEST)"; but this only works if I know all if the variables needed at that point (as opposed to being able to export variables in included makefiles.) Is there an easy solution?

Ubuntu :: Write A Simple Shell Script And Environment Variables?

Feb 8, 2010

I'm trying to write a simple shell script, its purpose is not important. The script needs to make use of the system $HOSTNAME environment variable. I had a look at this page which provides the following example.

echo "You are user $UID on $HOSTNAME"
echo "Your home directory is: $HOME"
echo "$HOSTNAME is running $OSTYPE"

General :: Exporting Environment Variables In Ubuntu?

Jun 2, 2010

I know many people have asked about environment variables before, but I am having a hard time dealing with these paths while ensuring I don't mess around with the original settings. How would you go about executing these commands in Ubuntu in terms of environment variables?

put /home/stanley/Downloads/ns-allinone-2.34/bin:/home/stanley/Downloads ns-allinone-2.34/tcl8.4.18/unix:/home/stanley/Downloads/ns-allinone-2.34/tk8.4.18/unixinto your PATH environment; so that you'll be able to run itm/tclsh wish/xgraph.


(1) You MUST put
into your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.

General :: Setting (permenant) Environment Variables In 10.0.4

General :: Xorg - Set Environment Variables For A Graphical Login?

Mar 18, 2010

I'm looking for a way to set arbitrary environment variables for my graphical login on linux. I am not talking about starting a terminal and exporting environment variables within the terminal, because those variables only exist within that one terminal. I want to know how to set an environment variable that will apply to all programs started in my graphical session.

In other words, what's the Xorg equivalent of ~/.bash_login?

General :: Which Environment Variables Not Inherited By Bash Shells

Jan 2, 2011

I am using Linux some years, but since I built a LFS, I feel noobish again. Now with the help of BLFS I am setting up my environment and somewhere I incidentally read, that not every variable is inherited by a child Bash shell. As for the $PS1 and $PS2 variables I know, that they are not inherited by non-interactive Bash shells (and there is no reason why they should in my opinion). Well, as for my first thread I hope the title gives enough information on what I want to know. But anyways: Which environment variables are not inherited by Bash shells?

General :: Tricking Apps About Current Time With Environment Variables?

May 21, 2010

Sometimes it is possible to trick a Linux app by calling it like this:

HOME=/tmp/foo myapp

This would make myapp think /tmp/foo is the home directory, it won't try to get the user id, find its home directory via getpwent(). This is useful when myapp must be forced to dump some of its config files into a non-standard location different than ~.

A similar trick can be done like this: LANG=foo LC_ALL=bar myapp

This is useful when myapp needs to be called once with a different locale without having to make the change persistent by using the export bash built-in or even modify stuff in /etc/profile.

Is it possible to pull the same trick with time and date? The goal is to make an app use another time than the system ones. The final goal - to make timestamps that appear in logs/commit messages not being tied to the system time.

General :: Cursor-based Interface To Change Environment Variables?

Sep 22, 2011

I often need to change a small part of long environment variable (especially, e.g., paths), and do it either by pasting the thing into an editor and changing it there, or the equivalent.

Is there some small convenience utility to edit environment variables with a cursor on the command line?

I suppose I could always whip one up, but am hoping there's already something that I'm just not aware of.

General :: Variables Between Shell Scripts?

May 20, 2010

Ive created some custom shell scripts to run during the kernels boot process (they are called from the init script).I was wondering if there's any way to assign a variable that can be accessed between different scripts.For example my first script checks which type of pc i am installing on and assigns the hard drive location to a variable.HARDDRIVE = "/dev/sda1"at the end of the script it calls another script. In this script I cant reference HARDDRIVE as it is blank, to get around this I need to repeat the same code for assigning it.Its more of a space/aesthetics issue but I figured someone might know the solution off the top of their head

Debian :: Python 2.7 Can't See OS Environment Variables

Aug 23, 2015

I'm trying to compile Ardour on jessie amd64 using the Debian source code (there's already an ardour package but I want to use different compile options). I've applied the Debian patches and have all the required dependencies installed.

Scons quits with a KeyError message from python2.7 saying that os.environ['DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS'] is not defined.

Checking with 'dpkg-archtecture -l' shows that DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS=linux, but 'print os.environ["DEB_HOST_ARCH_OS"]' in python says that name 'os' is not defined. The scons script has 'import os' at the top so it should be seeing it.

How do I make this visible to python (I'm assuming this problem is specific to the jessie python2.7 installation and not python in general)?
