/* Expand $VAR and ${VAR} references in SRC, returning the (always
   dynamically-allocated) result.  An unterminated ${ or any other
   character following $ produce error messages, and that part of SRC is
   ignored.  In the $VAR form, the variable name consists of consecutive
   letters, digits, and underscores.  In the ${VAR} form, the variable
   name consists of whatever is between the braces.  In any case,
   ``expansion'' just means calling `getenv'; if the variable is not
   set, the expansion is the empty string.  */
