Remove variable or function names - the opposite of set.

      unset [-fv] [name ...] 

   -v   Each name refers to a shell variable.(default)

   -f   Each name refers to a shell function, and the function definition is removed.


$ unset myvariable

Each unset variable or function is removed from the environment passed to subsequent commands. If any of RANDOM, SECONDS, LINENO, HISTCMD, FUNCNAME, GROUPS, or DIRSTACK are unset, they lose their special properties, even if they are subsequently reset.

The exit status is true unless a name is readonly. It is not an error for nothing to be unset.

This is a BASH shell builtin, to display your local syntax from the bash prompt type: help unset
