env var editor?

Does anybody know of a little utility that makes it easy to add/remove/modify frequently-modified env vars? e.g. sometimes I want to define one of several LD_LIBRARY_PATH values for my own purposes, or set CXXFLAGS/CFLAGS with some platform-specific optimizations, or change my path to either use icecream or don't use it. So I was thinking a little ncurses utility that turns my favorite frequently-toggled env var choices into a set of checkboxes would be handy to save typing.

CentOS and similar commonly use Environment Modules for this purpose, though it is far from little. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 16:50, 6 December 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
