An environment variable is a value that is generally set on a system-wide or per-user basis. When a program starts, it is given these environment variables.
They usually contain items such as where to look for executable programs ('path'), where the temporary file directory is ('tmp' or 'temp'), what the command prompt/shell prompt should look like ('prompt' in DOS, can't remember the unix/linux equivalent)
