See Get default login environment and the discussion therein. There is Shell::EnvImporter.

I'm not sure if you really want the effects of a shell script, or just something that "looks like sh environment commands". If so, your approach seems good, but doesn't respect quoted constructs.

In your code, I would at least change the split() to a more robust parser, so that it also understands foo=bar=baz as setting foo to bar=baz:

#my ($key, $value) = split /\s*=\s*/, $line; if( $line =~ /^\s*([^=]+)=(.*?)\s*$/ ) { my ($key,$value) = ($1,$2); $ENV{$key} = $value; } else { croak "Malformed environment line: '$line'"; };

Support for foo="bar=baz" and foo=\"bar=baz\" would also be addable, but if you want to support multiline values, you'll have to switch away from line-based parsing.

Updated: The capturing parentheses were missing for the key, spotted by Anomalous Monk

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
