Hi,

use "printenv |grep CFINPUTS"

Use "printenv" alone to see all variables.

Generally, the environment variables are set in a system-wide initialization file like /etc/profile or in individual files like $HOME/.profile or the like.

Here is more for bash: http://tldp.org/LDP/Bash-Beginners-Guide/html/sect_03_01.html
