OP said environment variables, which are different than "AutoCAD system variables"
If environment variables are really the desire here, see: http://www.hyperpics.com/downloads/resources/customization/autolisp/AutoCAD%20Environment%20Variable%20Quick%20Guide.pdf

To be finicky, environment variables do not exist for drawings.  System variables, yes.  Some system variables are both.

try {GreatPower;}
   catch (notResponsible)
      {NextTime(PlanAhead);}
   finally

Yep.

And then there is the distinction between variables saved in the drawing and those saved in the profile and those saved in the registry.

... and then there is the fact that the documentation is a little skimpy ... a 9 year old pdf from an independant web site is hardly current documentation.
