Is there a good way to set shell variables before running ESS's S+6
I don't want to set shell variables and export them globally; I want
them to apply only to the process from which S+ starts.
I've thought of a couple of ways:
(1) start an ordinary shell, set the variables, start S+,
to convert that shell to an ESS buffer.
(2) Write a shell script which sets the variables and starts S+;
then set inferior-S+6-program-name and inferior-ess-program to the
that shell script.
Is there a cleaner way?
Is there something in the style of:
but for setting shell variables rather than command-line arguments?
I didn't find anythingin the ESS manual.
