As mentioned yesterday on IRC, it'd be useful to document which environment variables foot uses in the foot.1 man page, as is common convention.

As [mentioned](https://libera.irclog.whitequark.org/foot/2021-05-26#1622062858-1622063080;) yesterday on IRC, it'd be useful to document which environment variables foot uses in the `foot.1` man page, as is common [convention](https://www.man7.org/linux/man-pages/man1/man.1.html#DESCRIPTION).

I was trying to get a list of all env variables that foot (could) use, and naively grepped the source for getenv to come up with this list:

  • SHELL
  • WAYLAND_DISPLAY
  • WESTON_CONFIG_FILE
  • XCURSOR_SIZE
  • XCURSOR_THEME
  • XDG_CONFIG_DIRS
  • XDG_CONFIG_HOME
  • XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP
  • XDG_RUNTIME_DIR

Is there anything else?

Is there anything else?

The variables that foot set, for example COLORTERM.
