 NAME
      env - set environment for command execution

 SYNOPSIS
      env [-] [-i] [name = value] ...  [command [arguments ...]]

 DESCRIPTION
      env obtains the current environment, modifies it according to its
      arguments, then executes the command with the modified environment.
      Arguments of the form name=value are merged into the inherited
      environment before the command is executed.  The -i option causes the
      inherited environment to be ignored completely so that the command is
      executed with exactly the environment specified by the arguments.	 The
      - option is obsolete and has the same effect as the -i option.

      If no command is specified, the resulting environment is printed, one
      name-value pair per line.

 RETURN VALUE
      If command is invoked, the exit status of env is the exit status of
      command; otherwise, env exits with one of the following values:

	   0	     env completed successfully.
	   1-125     env encountered an error.
	   126	     command was found but could not be invoked.
	   127	     command could not be found.

 EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
    Environment Variables
      LC_MESSAGES determines the language in which messages are displayed.

      If LC_MESSAGES is not specified in the environment or is set to the
      empty string, the value of LANG is used as a default for each
      unspecified or empty variable.  If LANG is not specified or is set to
      the empty string, a default of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of
      LANG.

      If any internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, env
      behaves as if all internationalization variables are set to "C".	See
      environ(5).

    International Code Set Support
      Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.

 WARNING
      The - option is obsolete.	 Use -i instead.
