I am giving export command in script like

The variable is exported automatically when you set a key in %ENV.

$ENV{ram} = 20;
system ('echo $ram');


system command forking one more child process. So the value becomes temporary.


It will always be temporary.

How can I come out of this problem.
Any help in this regard.


There is no way to do this directly. Read "perldoc -q environment"
