       The  following  environment  variables  may  be  used  as  aliases  to  their command-line

              Alternative to --crumb-separator.

              Alternative to --exec.

              Alternative to --file.

              Alternative to --file-append.

              Alternative to --format.

              Alternative to --indent.

              Alternative to --indent-char.

              Alternative to --separator.

              Alternative to --output.


       ·   Options are considered in order, so --output should precede any other option.

       ·   If no display option is specified, all details are displayed.

       ·   Only one display option may be specified.

       ·   Command-line options take priority over environment variables.

       ·   All values for --indent-char are literal except '\t' which can be used  to  specify  a
           tab character. The same is true for --separator-char and --crumb-separator but only if
           it is the first character specified.

       ·   Specifying a visible indent-char is only (vaguely) meaningful for text output.

       ·   If --exec is specified, atleast one non-option argument must also be specified.

       ·   Any long option name may be shortened as long as it remains unique.

       ·   The crumb output format is designed for easy  parsing:  it  displays  the  data  in  a
           flattened  format  with  each  value  on  a  separate line preceded by all appropriate
           headings which are separated by the current separator.

       ·   The --message-queues, --semaphores and --shared-memory options are  not  available  on
           BSD since although the values are queryable, there is no documented method to do so.


        # Show limits
        procenv -l

        # Send compiler information to syslog (note the order of the options).
        procenv --output=syslog --compiler

        # Write compiler details direct to the terminal
        procenv --output=terminal --compiler

        # Run a command ('mycmd --arg1 --foo=bar') without creating a new
        # process, but have procenv run first and log its output to a
        # regular file.
        exec procenv --file=/tmp/procenv.log --exec -- mycmd --arg1 --foo=bar

        # The following kernel command-line snippet will cause procenv to
        # write output to first serial tty device and then execute init(8)
        # in debug mode to allow early boot environment to be examined.
        init=/usr/bin/procenv PROCENV_FILE=/dev/ttyS0 PROCENV_EXEC="/sbin/init --debug"

        # Display all data in JSON format using an indent of 4 spaces
        procenv --format=json --indent=4

        # Display all data in XML format using tabs for indents
        procenv --format=xml --indent-char="\t"

        # Display signal details in XML format
        procenv --format=xml --signals

        # Display resource limits in easily-parseable format
        procenv --format=crumb --limits

        # Produce output suitable for importing into a spreadsheet
        procenv --format=crumb --crumb-separator=',' --separator=',' --limits

        # Produce stylised output
        procenv --format=crumb --crumb-separator=' → ' --separator='='


       ·   Spaces  within  the  value  of PROCENV_EXEC are treated as delimiters meaning that any
           spaces within a string argument for example will result in incorrect behaviour.

       ·   The separator character must be chosen carefully since no check is  performed  on  the
           data to see if it itself contains instances of the separator character.
