envstore - save and restore environment variables
envstore command [args ...]
envstore can save and restore environment variables, thus transferring
them between different shells.
command must be one of
Forget all stored variables
Produce shell code for evaluation, restoring all saved variables
List saved variables in better readable format
save variable [value]
Save variable either with its current shell value or with value
Remove variable from store
Note: Only the first character of command is checked, so envstore e
instead of envstore eval, envstore c for envstore clear, etc., are also
ENVSTORE_FILE The file in which the environment parameters are stored,
/tmp/envstore-EUID by default,
Variable names or values must not contain null bytes or newlines.
Due to limitations imposed by most shells, it is not possible to save
parameters containing more than one consecutive whitespace. envstore
will save and display them correctly, but unless you do IFS trickery,
your shell will not be able to load them.
The current maximum length (in bytes) is 255 bytes for the variable name
and 1023 bytes for its content.
