Thank you all for the responses.  BTW, I did RTFM and the pages said
nothing explicitly between the two.

Original Question
Kinda academic question but what is the difference between the 'set' and
'env' commands.  Typing in either command (without parameters) spits out a
bunch of environment variables.  Is there a difference?

"set" gives both environment and shell variables.  "env" only gives
environment variables, which are passed along to child processes.

  The box says: Win98, WinNT or BETTER. That's why I installed Linux.
