comment How do I run a program in a fresh shell?
I'd really rather not have to save the env, wipe, reset to default env, wipe, and then reset to saved env. that takes too long.

No, because ssh will revert the pwd to ~ which may mess other things up. Also, that requires either the user to type in the password, or an rhosts to be set up, and neither of those work for this setting.

comment How do I run a program in a fresh shell?
I want the environment to be like a fresh shell (running .rc files) would be, ignoring any changes I had made to the environment. For other reasons, storing and restoring and un-restoring the env is messy.

No, I need to export the variables because the top level program is actually several programs that call each other.

I'd rather not have to change the directory, I thought that there was a variable for this already.

comment $PWD variable equivalent of pwd -P
A command doesn't help any. If I wanted a command I could just use /bin/pwd or pwd -P. I want a variable.
