I've been experimenting with the Novell Client for Linux v1.2 on
SLED10. I have most of it working as intended.

Now I'd like to integrate with some scripts to do automatic logins. I
notice that in the help message (from 'nwlogin --help'), this
information is present:

-E, --passenv
pass password via environment variable

The same (almost, it only lists --passenv, not -E) goes for gnwlogin.

This looks like a very useful feature for script integration, but
unfortunately, I can't find any documentation on which environment
variable to use. The -E/--passenv parameter is also missing from the
nwlogin(1) manual page.

What environment variable should be used? Is this feature official, so
that I can rely on it being present in later versions of the client?
