Re: How to unset environment variable

The function delete-environment-variable! does a dynamic type check to assure the env-var name is a string then grabs a mutex, so it looks like it is thread safe.  But, beyond that, I'd be speculating.

Thank you.
What is the difference between (set-environment-variable! "FOOBAR" #f)
and (delete-environment-variable! "FOOBAR") ? The source code looks like
they do different things. I would assume that "delete-environment-variable!"
is the proper method for deleting an environment variable.
