DESCRIPTION

       Tcl_PutEnv  sets  an environment variable. The information is passed in a single string of
       the form “NAME=value”.  This procedure is intended to be a stand-in for  the  UNIX  putenv
       system  call.  All Tcl-based applications using putenv should redefine it to Tcl_PutEnv so
       that they will interface properly to the Tcl runtime.
