NAME
     printenv, env -- print out	the environment, set and print environment

SYNOPSIS
     printenv [name]
     env [-] [name=value ...] [command]

DESCRIPTION
     Printenv prints out the names and values of the variables in the environ-
     ment, with	one name/value pair per	line.  If name is specified, only its
     value is printed.

     If	a name is specified and	it is not defined in the environment, printenv
     returns exit status 1, else it returns status 0.

     Env executes command 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 option `-' causes env to	completely ig-
     nore the environment it inherits.

     If	no command is specified, env prints out	the names and values of	the
     variables in the environment, with	one name/value pair per	line.

SEE ALSO
     csh(1), sh(1), execvp(3), environ(7)

HISTORY
     The printenv command appeared in 3.0BSD.

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