NAME

       pam_getenv - get environment variables from /etc/environment

SYNOPSIS

       pam_getenv [-l] [-s] env_var

DESCRIPTION

       This tool  will print out the value of env_var from /etc/environment.  It will attempt to
       expand environment variable references in the definition of env_var but will fail if PAM
       items are expanded.

       The -l option indicates the script should return an environment variable related to
       default locale information.

       The -s option indicates that the script should return an system default environment
       variable.

       Currently neither the -l or -s options do anything.  They are included because future
       versions of Debian may have a separate repository for the initial environment used by init
       scripts and for system locale information.  These options will allow this script to be a
       stable interface even in that environment.
