This may be a stupid question; but I can't find a good list of common
environment variables for most applications to work.
I am not talking about the CYGWIN variable. That variable is very well
documented throughout this list and on the Cygwin site documentation.
I mean variables like HTTP_proxy and TZ.
I have had very little success getting the *_proxy variables working with
lynx, ncftp, or wget.
I just want to know what variables you guys set to make your job easier.
I tried setting a few other variables through the profile script, but those
didn't work too well either.
