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.
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.
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.
