ENV(1) BSD General Commands Manual ENV(1)
env -- set and print environment
env [-i] [name=value ...] [utility [argument ...]]
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.
env exits with one of the following values:
0 utility was invoked and completed successfully. In this case the exit code is
returned by the utility itself, not env. If no utility was specified, then env com-
pleted successfully and returned the exit code itself.
1 An invalid command line option was passed to env.
1-125 utility was invoked, but failed in some way; see its manual page for more informa-
tion. In this case the exit code is returned by the utility itself, not env.
126 utility was found, but could not be invoked.
127 utility could not be found.
The historic - option has been deprecated but is still supported in this implementation.
The env utility conforms to IEEE Std 1003.2-1992 (``POSIX.2'').
env doesn't handle commands with equal (``='') signs in their names, for obvious reasons.
