How to read and set environment variables in CentOS

Environment variables are a set of dynamic variables that are part of the operating environment for UNIX-like operating systems such as CentOS. These variables affect the behavior of processes that run in that operating system. For example, the TEMP environment variable specifies a suitable location for storing temporary files. Environment variables are set to initial values when you log in to your shell, but you can also change them during the logon session. Displaying and changing environment variables is a routine task that all CentOS users should be able to perform.
