ENV(1)                  NetBSD General Commands Manual                  ENV(1)


NAME
env -- set and print environment
SYNOPSIS
env [-i] [name=value ...] [utility [argument ...]]
DESCRIPTION
env executes utility after modifying the environment as specified on the command line. The option name=value specifies an environmental variable, name, with a value of value. The option `-i' causes env to completely ignore the environment it inherits. If no utility is specified, env prints out the names and values of the variables in the environment, with one name=value pair per line.
EXIT STATUS
If the utility is invoked, the exit status of env shall be the exit sta- tus of utility; otherwise, the env utility exits with one of the follow- ing values: 0 The env utility completed successfully 1-125 An error occurred in the env utility. 126 The utility specified by utility was found, but could not be invoked. 127 The utility specified by utility could not be found.
COMPATIBILITY
The historic - option has been deprecated but is still supported in this implementation.
