I'm not sure if this will help or not, but you can define any new 
environment variable if you include the "$" as the first character. For 
example:
   put "foo" into $VAR

That gives a new environment variable named "$VAR". I'm assuming you can 
change the content of any existing environment variable the same way, by 
just putting something new into the variable. I haven't worked with this 
much though.
