PAM_GETENV(8) User Contributed Perl Documentation PAM_GETENV(8)NAME
pam_getenv - get environment variables from /etc/environment
pam_getenv [-l] [-s] env_var
This tool will print out the value of env_var from /etc/environment. It will attempt to expand environment variable references in the
definition of env_var but will fail if PAM items are expanded.
The -l option indicates the script should return an environment variable related to default locale information.
The -s option indicates that the script should return an system default environment variable.
Currently neither the -l or -s options do anything. They are included because future versions of Debian may have a separate repository for
the initial environment used by init scripts and for system locale information. These options will allow this script to be a stable
interface even in that environment.

The pam_getenv function returns the value of an environment variable. Its semantics are similar to those of getenv(3), but it accesses the
PAM context's environment list instead of the application's.
The pam_getenv function returns NULL on failure.
