ENV(1)			FreeBSD	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.

DIAGNOSTICS
     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.

SEE ALSO
     execvp(3),	environ(7)

STANDARDS
     The env utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 (``POSIX.2'').

BUGS
     env doesn't handle	commands with equal (``='') signs in their names, for
     obvious reasons.
