Environment variables can have any value, it depends upon how you use them in your scripts. in simple shell scripts you can set a variable to a sequence separated by spaces (the default, lookup the IFS shell variable:  and then process them as a list, e.g.


F="a b c"
for i in ${F}
echo $i

When you set the variables value in pipelines, there is no need for the '"'s - only when you set it in the shell. 

Thanks Matthew!
