ENV(1)			  BSD 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 in-
	     voked.

     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.
