10 Environment variables

The `units' programs uses the following environment variables.

     Specifies the locale.  The default is `en_US'.  Sections of the
     units database are specific to certain locales.

     Specifies the pager to use for help and for displaying the
     conformable units.  The help function browses the units database
     and calls the pager using the `+nn' syntax for specifying a line
     number.  The default pager is `more', but `less', `emacs', or `vi'
     are possible alternatives.

     Specifies the units database file to use (instead of the default).
     This will be overridden by the `-f' option.  Note that you can only
     specify a single units database using this environment variable.
