NAME

getconfget configuration values

SYNOPSIS

getconf [-Ll] [-v specification] name [pathname]

DESCRIPTION

The getconf utility writes the current value of a configurable system limit or option variable to the standard output.
The name argument specifies the system variable to be queried. The pathname argument must be supplied for system variables associated with a pathname.
The options are as follows:
 
 
-L
List the system variables that can be used with the getconf utility that require a pathname argument.
 
 
-l
List the system variables that can be used with the getconf utility without a pathname argument.
 
 
-v specification
Indicate a specific version and compilation environment for which configuration variables shall be queried. OpenBSD does not change behavior for different compilation environments, so the argument to this option is only checked for validity.

EXIT STATUS

The getconf utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

pathconf(2), confstr(3), sysconf(3)

STANDARDS

The getconf utility is compliant with the IEEE Std 1003.1-2008 (“POSIX.1”) specification.
The flags [-Ll] are extensions to that specification.
