comment What exactly is an environment variable?
It would seem to be a little more complicated still. In bash at least SOME_NAME=value command will set the SOME_NAME environment variable for that command invocation. Confusingly, it doesn't seem to set the shell variable of the same name.

@wisemonkey, I guess I don't properly understand the question. Maybe you should add more examples or try describing it another way.
