For some reason, we set values to Environment variable on our system so that our program can work accordingly. therefore I learn how to show and set environment variables.
To show all the current environment values,
To show particular environment value, for example
1 echo $PATH
To set a custom environment value, for example
bulafish=hi and verify,
1 2 export bulafish=hi echo $bulafish
The value is only validate for the current ssh session by using the command above. If you want to set the value permanently, modify
/etc/environment, after that, you must logout the current ssh connection and re-login again to make the change take effect.
