/*
** PR_GetEnv() -- Retrieve value of environment variable
** 
** Description:
** PR_GetEnv() is modeled on Unix getenv().
** 
** 
** Inputs: 
**   var -- The name of the environment variable
** 
** Returns:
**   The value of the environment variable 'var' or NULL if
** the variable is undefined.
** 
** Restrictions:
**   You'd think that a POSIX getenv(), putenv() would be
**   consistently implemented everywhere. Surprise! It is not. On
**   some platforms, a putenv() where the argument is of
**   the form "name"  causes the named environment variable to
**   be un-set; that is: a subsequent getenv() returns NULL. On
**   other platforms, the putenv() fails, on others, it is a
**   no-op. Similarly, a putenv() where the argument is of the
**   form "name=" causes the named environment variable to be
**   un-set; a subsequent call to getenv() returns NULL. On
**   other platforms, a subsequent call to getenv() returns a
**   pointer to a null-string (a byte of zero).
** 
**   PR_GetEnv(), PR_SetEnv() provide a consistent behavior 
**   across all supported platforms. There are, however, some
**   restrictions and some practices you must use to achieve
**   consistent results everywhere.
** 
**   When manipulating the environment there is no way to un-set
**   an environment variable across all platforms. We suggest
**   you interpret the return of a pointer to null-string to
**   mean the same as a return of NULL from PR_GetEnv().
** 
**   A call to PR_SetEnv() where the parameter is of the form
**   "name" will return PR_FAILURE; the environment remains
**   unchanged. A call to PR_SetEnv() where the parameter is
**   of the form "name=" may un-set the envrionment variable on
**   some platforms; on others it may set the value of the
**   environment variable to the null-string.
** 
**   For example, to test for NULL return or return of the
**   null-string from PR_GetEnv(), use the following code
**   fragment:
** 
**      char *val = PR_GetEnv("foo");
**      if ((NULL == val) || ('\0' == *val)) { 
**          ... interpret this as un-set ... 
**      }
** 
**   The caller must ensure that the string passed
**   to PR_SetEnv() is persistent. That is: The string should
**   not be on the stack, where it can be overwritten
**   on return from the function calling PR_SetEnv().
**   Similarly, the string passed to PR_SetEnv() must not be
**   overwritten by other actions of the process. ... Some
**   platforms use the string by reference rather than copying
**   it into the environment space. ... You have been warned!
** 
**   Use of platform-native functions that manipulate the
**   environment (getenv(), putenv(), 
**   SetEnvironmentVariable(), etc.) must not be used with
**   NSPR's similar functions. The platform-native functions
**   may not be thread safe and/or may operate on different
**   conceptual environment space than that operated upon by
**   NSPR's functions or other environment manipulating
**   functions on the same platform. (!)

** Description:

** Inputs:

**   constant, persistent string of the form name=value. Where
**   name is the name of the environment variable to be set or
