Using Datastage environment variables in Unix script

Hi All,

I am using ETL tool Datastage and is installed on Linux environment. Few environment variables are set in datastage. Now my requirement is to use those environment variables in a unix script.

Is there any option I can do it?

Sugeestions from people working on datastage and linux are most welcome.

if there is a way to read these variables by commandline or from config files then you can do this in script and execute 'export var=value'.
now 'var' is available in other scripts..
