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 variable to the standard output.

     The system_var argument specifies the system variable to be queried.  The
     names of the system 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 leading ``_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.
