Accessing Environment Variables... It was necessary a JNI library to access os environment variables, Some links:
   LCC: A free C compiler for Windows
   Intresting note to make JNI libraries
   Free JNI interface to get environment variables (with sources)
   Short description how to use environment-variables under JDK 1.4

Environment settings shared library for linux compiled (thanks Fernando Lozano!!!!)
This file is escential for debugging and is the risponsible of setting environment variables for DBG extension.
It's under testing. If you are linux user please download and try it, I'm waiting for feedback.
You must uncompress the file and put it on <your plugins folder>/net.sourceforge.phpeclipse.debug.core/os/linux/x86

Notes about compilation:
This was compiled using gcc 3.2.2 so it won't work for Linux distributions using older releases of the C compiler. For the same reason, you have to use JRE 1.4.2 from Sun (or a Blackdown one compiled using gcc 3.2.2). I know for sure this should work on Red Hat 8.0 and 9.0 but don't know wich releases for other Linux distributions.

The followig command builds the library:

gcc -fpic -shared net_sourceforge_phpdt_internal_debug_core_Environment.c -I$JAVA_HOME/include -I$JAVA_HOME/include/linux -o
