GETENV(3)                                               GETENV(3)

     NAME
          getenv, putenv - access environment variables

     SYNOPSIS
          #include <u.h>
          #include <libc.h>

          char* getenv(char *name)
          int   putenv(char *name, char *val)

     DESCRIPTION
          Getenv fetches the environment value associated with name
          into memory allocated with malloc(3), 0-terminates it, and
          returns a pointer to that area.  If no file exists, 0 is
          returned.

          Putenv sets the environment value associated with name to
          val.

     DIAGNOSTICS
          Sets errstr.

     BUGS
          To avoid name conflicts with the underlying system, getenv
          and putenv are preprocessor macros defined as p9getenv and
          p9putenv; see intro(3).
