Export is unnecessary.  Export is used to push the variable to the 
global environment for that login, rather than limited to the context of 
the currently running script.  As such, it is a _bad_ thing to use in a 
script unless you are intentionally trying to configure the login 
profile (such as /etc/profile or ~/.bash_profile).
