Hi everybody,

is it possible to set a nginx config variable from an ENV variable? I tried
several thing, but none of them worked. The most promising was specifying
 "env MY_VAR;" at the top of the nginx.conf and then using its value via
"my_option $ENV{"MY_VAR"};". But it didn't work. I always got an error
about the line not being terminated.

1. Is it possible to set a config option via ENV varaibles
2. If so, does it have any performance implications? (The ENV wont change
during run time)

Thank you very much for your help.
