Could someone please point me to some reference information on what exactly the passShellenvironment variable does? I want more detail info on it besides what's available on Tomcat 6 CGI How-To doc.

The reason being is had it not been my lucky guess that this variable was the cause of my problem as per my earlier post here:

After doing some google searches, I found others who experienced similar problem. But the suggestion to set the passShellenvironment to "true" wasn't fully explained or why it was needed.

Thanks,
Daniel
