I don't see GNASH_FLASH_VERSION either, but surely looks like a good idea to have, as the plugin doesn't read the gnashrc, where you can specify a version.

Should probably go in the user manual, but I see GNASH_FLASH_VERSION in the documentation for the plugin, but see it nowhere in the code.

The gnash plugin uses a couple of environment variables
but it's not documented in gnash manual:

GNASH_PLAYER - when set, the plugins uses it as the path to the standalone executable

GNASH_OPTIONS - a space-separated list of options, supported ones:
waitforgdb - right after the fork, print the pid of the about-to-become standalone player and give instructions on how to attach gdb on it
writelauncher - if support for it is compiled in (--enable-sa-launcher, on by default) makes the plugin create a /tmp/gnash-debug-# script you can run to invoke the standalone executable against the movie url.

In addition, the standalone player supports the env variable

GNASHRC - colon-separated list of paths to gnashrc files, will be parsed in that order. The plugin will append its own values to it (systemwide and user gnashpluginrc).
