POSIX environment support

getEnvironment retrieves the entire environment as a list of
putEnv function takes an argument of the form
name=value and is equivalent to
setEnv function inserts or resets the environment variable name in the current environment list. If the variable
name does not exist in the list, it is inserted with the given value. If the variable does exist, the argument
overwrite is tested; if
False, the variable is not reset, otherwise it is reset to the given value.
unsetEnv function deletes all instances of the variable name from the environment.
