> There is a so-called environment iterator in Boost.ProgramOptions (see <http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_58_0/doc/html/boost/environment_iterator.html>). And the library that should have become Boost.Process has support for passing environment variables to a new process (including std::wstring; see <http://www.highscore.de/boost/process0.5/boost_process/tutorial.html#boost_process.tutorial.inheriting_environment_variables>).
Thanks for the pointers.
Such a library would be reasonable small, but do you think it would be a useful addition to Boost? I'm still shaking my head that environment variables aren't better supported by standard C++.
