Disables processing of the $ENV file and importing of shell functions. Turning this option off causes the effective uid and gid to be set to the real uid and gid. vi use a vi-style line editing interface emacs use an emacs-style line editing interface noexec -n Read commands but do not execute them. verbose -v display shell input lines as they are read. xtrace -x display commands and arguments as they are executed. posix operate as 1003.2 standard interactive-comments allow comments to appear in interactive commands - Assign any remaining arguments to the positional parameters. The -x and -v options are turned off. Using + rather than - causes flags to be turned off. The flags can be used at invocation of the shell. The current set of flags may be found in $-. echo $- himBH (hashall, jobcontrol, Braceexpand, HistExpand ) The remaining n ARGs are positional parameters and are assigned, in order, to $1, $2, .. $n. If no ARGs are given, all shell variables are printed.
