Hi All -
I want to try and set a new environment variable within one perl script and use it within another.
I have looked up various sources - yet when I try - it fails -

I do:

Use Env;
$ENV('NEW_ENV_VARIABLE') = $my_value;

but it fails - any ideas ?

I am using: "This is perl, v5.6.1 built for i386-linux"

In the second script - I want to be able to read this environment variable and use it.

Thanks in Advance -
