ENV(1)			   OpenBSD Reference 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 environment variable,
     name, with a value of value.

     The options are as follows:

     -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.

     The env utility 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 completed 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 information.  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.

     execvp(3), environ(7)

     The env utility is compliant with the IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (``POSIX'')

     The historic - option has been deprecated but is still supported in this

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