and the environment does not already exist.

\examples{
\dontshow{basilisk.utils::installConda()}

tmploc <- file.path(tempdir(), "my_package_A")
if (!file.exists(tmploc)) {
    setupBasiliskEnv(tmploc, c('pandas=1.4.3'))
}
obtainEnvironmentPath(tmploc)

env <- BasiliskEnvironment("test_env", "basilisk", 
    packages=c("scikit-learn=1.1.1", "pandas=1.43.1"))
\dontrun{obtainEnvironmentPath(env)}
