When I load jEdit, I can happily see all the the environment variables
that were present in my shell.
At our company we having a fairly elaborate view/context switching
script, which invokes a new shell and sets a whole bunch of environment
variables, and I have several macros which work with those variables.
So, currently if I want to switch views, I have to exit jedit, exit the
shell, invoke the switcher which creates a new shell, and start jedit
Now, one alternative is to implement a jedit macro which resets all
those variables in a running session - this would be painful though,
since it's big beast which I don't really want to delve into.
Is there a way I could tell a running jedit instance to reinitialise
it's env variables from a shell?
