NAME

envsubst - substitutes environment variables in shell format strings

SYNOPSIS

envsubst [ OPTION] [SHELL-FORMAT]

DESCRIPTION

Substitutes the values of environment variables.

Operation mode:

-v, --variables
output the variables occurring in SHELL-FORMAT

Informative output:

-h, --help
display this help and exit
-V, --version
output version information and exit
In normal operation mode, standard input is copied to standard output, with references to environment variables of the form $VARIABLE or ${VARIABLE} being replaced with the corresponding values. If a SHELL-FORMAT is given, only those environment variables that are referenced in SHELL-FORMAT are substituted; otherwise all environment variables references occurring in standard input are substituted.
When --variables is used, standard input is ignored, and the output consists of the environment variables that are referenced in SHELL-FORMAT, one per line.
