NAME
     getconf -- get configuration values

SYNOPSIS
     getconf system_var
     getconf -a
     getconf path_var pathname
     getconf -a pathname

DESCRIPTION
     The getconf utility writes the current value of a configurable system limit or option vari-
     able to the standard output.

     The system_var argument specifies the system variable to be queried.  The names of the sys-
     tem variables are from sysconf(3) with the leading ``_SC_'' removed.

     The path_var argument specifies the pathname variable to be queried for the specified
     pathname argument.  The names of the pathname variables are from pathconf(2) with the lead-
     ing ``_PC_'' removed.

     When invoked with the option -a, getconf writes a list of all applicable variables and their
     values to the standard output, in the format ``name = value''.

EXIT STATUS
     The getconf utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

SEE ALSO
     pathconf(2), confstr(3), limits(3), sysconf(3)

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