Hello I was wondering if there is a way to read a unix profile'd variable while inside my PERL code?

I'm trying to do something like this.

system( " execute some code >> $UNIXVAR\log");

also tried

system( " execute some code >> '$UNIXVAR\log'");

I think though that the way I'm executing my application that I'm losing my profile's exported varibles.

I'm executing my app like this
./perlapp.pl
This is on an AIX Unix environment if this helps anyone.

Thanks for the quick reply, but that's not quite what I need.
I wasn't quite clear enough.
So for example say I export a path to a variable name then my perl script I want to access that path that is stored in the variable is there a way to access that?

From what I see from the $ENV variable options it holds a lot of information the system and unix environment but I do not see any profile/user variables in the list.

thanks for the help I didn't notice those were braces around the variable this is exactly what I needed
