Subject: Re: [boost] Environment Variables Library?
From: Michael Ainsworth (michael_at_[hidden])

Two primary purposes, two ideas for additional possible uses.

Primary purposes:

1. To provide cross platform (e.g., POSIX plus Windows) equivalents of setenv, getenv, "unsetenv" and "issetenv".
2. To allow iteration over all defined environment variables.

Additional possible uses:

1. To create a new environment to pass to a new process.
2. To provide non "char" based environment variables (e.g., std::wstring).

All input appreciated.


> I'm not aware of one, which isn't the same as saying there isn't one. What would you expect it to do? ::setenv() is already standardized by POSIX, so I assume you are looking for some support on non-POSIX systems, but specifics would be helpful.
