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 environment variable,
     name, with	a value	of value.

     The options are as	follows:

     -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.

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

EXIT STATUS
     The env utility exits with	one of the following values:

     0	     env completed successfully	and, if	utility	was specified, it was
	     invoked and completed successfully	too.

     1	     An	invalid	command	line option was	passed to env and utility was
	     not invoked, or utility was invoked but failed with exit status
	     1.

     2-125, 128-255
	     utility was invoked but failed with this exit status; see its
	     manual page for more information.

     126     utility was found but could not be	invoked, or it was invoked but
	     failed with exit status 126.

     127     utility could not be found, or it was invoked but failed with
	     exit status 127.

SEE ALSO
     execvp(3),	environ(7)

STANDARDS
     The env utility is	compliant with the IEEE	Std 1003.1-2008	("POSIX.1")
     specification.

     The historic - option has been deprecated but is still supported in this
     implementation.
