Sys.unsetenv removes environment variables.

Non-standard R names must be quoted in
Sys.setenv: see the examples. Most platforms (and POSIX) do not allow names containing

"", but Windows does not, and there
Sys.setenv(FOO = "") unsets FOO.
There may be system-specific limits on the maximum length of the values of individual environment variables or of all environment variables.
A logical vector, with elements being true if (un)setting the corresponding variable succeeded. (For
Sys.unsetenv this includes attempting to remove a non-existent variable.)
Sys.getenv, Startup for ways to set environment variables for the R session.
