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 refer-
       enced  in SHELL-FORMAT are substituted; otherwise all environment vari-
       ables 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-FOR-
       MAT, one per line.
