Unix and variations:
echo $ORACLE_SID

To set it:
export ORACLE_SID=ORCL

where ORCL is the correct SID.

I don't understand the second half  " or Windows"

To clear up something, setting the ORACLE_SID in Unix variants does depend on the variant and which shell you are using.  This command:

export ORACLE_SID=ORCL

should work in most cases, but will not work in all cases.

Any system where you are using a true Bourne shell, that will not work, you would be required to do this:

ORACLE_SID=ORCL
export ORACLE_SID

Also, if you are using csh or one of its variants, the command would be different as well.  Not many people use that one anymore, but it is different.
