Environmental variables

Hi newsgroup!
        Scenario: you install a new program in your web server machine, and you must
put new environmental variables (or change someone) to make the program works.
        Question: If a new CGI program calls the one newly installed, how you can bind
the www server so the new child it spawns has the new environmental variables,
without restart it?
                                Thanks in advance,

1. how to set environmental variables (ie. PERLLIB)

Hi all,
        We've got several web specific libraries that we use all the time
and are stored in /cgi-bin/include.

The problem is that any script that wants to require one of those files,
must do something like:


This is a pain (especially if things move around).

I was hoping that I could set PERLLIB as root and then start the webservers
and they would pass PERLLIB along, but they don't seem to be.

We are using Netscape Enterprise...

Any ideas?
