getenv


Description:

[ Version ( since = "2.28" ) ]
public unowned string getenv (string name)

Gets the value of a particular environment variable of the command line invocation, as would be returned by get_variable.

The strings may contain non-utf8 data.

The remote application usually does not send an environment. Use g_application_send_environment to affect that. Even with this flag set it is possible that the environment is still not available (due to invocation messages from other applications).

The return value should not be modified or freed and is valid for as long as this exists.

Parameters:

this

a ApplicationCommandLine

name

the environment variable to get

Returns:

the value of the variable, or null if unset or unsent
