Got a problem compiling this

This line

if (unsetenv(CS *name) < 0) return FALSE;

is prevent the compilation.

gcc environment.c
environment.c: In function `cleanup_environment':
environment.c:54: warning: cast to pointer from integer of different size
environment.c:54: void value not ignored as it ought to be


man unsetenv
GETENV(3)                   BSD Programmer's Manual                  GETENV(3)

     getenv, putenv, setenv, unsetenv - environment variable functions

     #include <stdlib.h>

     char *
     getenv(const char *name);

     setenv(const char *name, const char *value, int overwrite);

     putenv(const char *string);

     unsetenv(const char *name);

     These functions set, unset and fetch environment variables from the host
     environment list. For compatibility with differing environment conven-
     tions, the given arguments name and value may be appended and prepended,
     respectively, with an equal sign ``=''.

     The getenv() function obtains the current value of the environment vari-
     able, name. If the variable name is not in the current environment, a
     null pointer is returned.

     The setenv() function inserts or resets the environment variable name in
     the current environment list.  If the variable name does not exist in the
     list, it is inserted with the given value. If the variable does exist,
     the argument overwrite is tested; if overwrite is zero, the variable is
     not reset, otherwise it is reset to the given value.

     The putenv() function takes an argument of the form ``name=value'' and is
     equivalent to:

           setenv(name, value, 1);

     The unsetenv() function deletes all instances of the variable name point-
     ed to by name from the list.

     The functions setenv() and putenv() return zero if successful; otherwise
     the global variable errno is set to indicate the error and a -1 is re-

     [ENOMEM]  The function setenv() or putenv() failed because they were un-
               able to allocate memory for the environment.

     csh(1),  sh(1),  execve(2),  environ(7)

     The getenv() function conforms to ANSI C X3.159-1989 (``ANSI C '').
