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 status of utility; oth-
     erwise, the env utility exits with one of the following 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 invoked.

     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.
