Environment variables exported to scripts
Stunnix Advanced Web Server exports a set of environment variables for use in scripts and in Server Parsed documents. All environment variables supported by Apache web server are exported.
You can see what environment variables are exported and their values by running sample site shipped with Stunnix Advanced Web Server just by executing /sample-image/site/stunnixwebsr/startsite.pl and following link to simple CGI script.

Other environment variables
It's possible to request SPWS to temporarily export additional environment variables when documents or scripts are served/executed on a per-location basis too using SetEnv directive in configuration file. It's very useful for passing various bits of configuration information like name of database to use or name of default CSS stylesheet.
