Hello list,

I'm trying to write a python script that would allow me to manipulate
shell variables of the calling shell. I'm trying to write some logic
that would know to add LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the users environment.

In bash this is done with "export", can I do this with python? (If at
all possible because python is actually a sub process of bash).

Thank you,

Maxim Veksler
