Hi

From python I need to sen and environmental variable e.g.

export TEST=/usr/test

I tried this in python
cmd = "echo export VVG=/Users >> ~/.bash_profile"
os.system(cmd)
cmd = "source ~/.bash_profile"
os.system(cmd)
cmd = """echo $VVG"""
print os.system(cmd)

I saved to bash
restated bash
But....the echo $VVG did not work

How can I make it take?

Thanks
