Dear Mailing List,

What happened to export?

Grateful for any answer!

/bin/sh is not bash on FreeBSD.  IF you're using /bin/sh, then you
need to assign and export values as separate operations:

   FOO=bar
   export FOO

Also, root's shell is not /bin/sh or anything of that ilk by default.
It is /bin/csh aka /bin/tcsh, and for that the syntax is:

   setenv FOO bar

        Cheers,

        Matthew

Sorry, but that's incorrect. One line exports do work in either bash or sh:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]$ export FOO=bar; echo $FOO
bar
[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~]$ sh
$ export FOO=bar; echo $FOO
bar

He's probably using (t)csh.
