NAME

wtf - translates acronyms for you  

SYNOPSIS

[is ] acronym ...  

DESCRIPTION

The utility displays the expansion of the acronyms specified on the command line. If the acronym is unknown, will check to see if the acronym is known by the whatis(1) command.

If ``is'' is specified on the command line, it will be ignored, allowing the fairly natural ``wtf is WTF'' usage.  

ENVIRONMENT

ACRONYMDB
The default acronym database may be overridden by setting the environment variable ACRONYMDB to the name of a file in the proper format (acronym[tab]meaning).

 

FILES

/usr/share/misc/acronyms
default acronym database.

 

SEE ALSO
