thanks - I had no idea there were 2 variable namespaces. It looks like
everything I can see in 'environ' was explcitly exported in
/etc/profile, or ~/.bashrc, or picked up from Windows.
Is there a way for C programs to pick up the contents of the shell
variable namespace? In particular, is there some way I can pick up
SHELL, or some other way that I can find out if my app's running on bash?
