WTF(6)                        NetBSD Games Manual                       WTF(6)

NAME
     wtf -- translates acronyms for you

SYNOPSIS
     wtf [-f dbfile] [is] acronym ...

DESCRIPTION
     The wtf utility displays the expansion of the acronyms specified on the
     command line.  If the acronym is not in any of the acronyms databases,
     wtf will check to see if the acronym is known by whatis(1), pkg_info(1),
     or via pkgsrc's internal help mechanism, ``make help topic=XXX''.

     If ``is'' is specified on the command line, it will be ignored, allowing
     the fairly natural ``wtf is WTF'' usage.

     The following options are available:

     -f dbfile
           Overrides the default acronym database, bypassing the value of the
           ACRONYMDB variable.

ENVIRONMENT
     ACRONYMDB  The default acronym database may be overridden by setting the
                environment variable ACRONYMDB to the name of one or more
                space-separated file names of acronym databases.  The files
                must be in the proper format (acronym[tab]meaning).

FILES
     /usr/share/misc/acronyms       default acronym database.
     /usr/share/misc/acronyms.comp  computer-related acronym database.

SEE ALSO
     make(1), pkg_info(1), whatis(1)
