       bbcmd - Run a Xymon command with environment set


       bbcmd --env=ENVFILE COMMAND


       bbcmd(1) is a utility that can setup the Xymon environment variables as
       defined in a hobbitlaunch(8) compatible  environment  definition  file,
       and then execute a command with this environment in place. It is mostly
       used for testing extension scripts or in  other  situations  where  you
       need to run a single command with the environment in place.

       The   "--env=ENVFILE"  option  points  bbcmd  to  the  file  where  the
       environment definitions are loaded from.

       COMMAND is the command to execute after setting up the environment.

       If you want to run multiple commands, it is often easiest to  just  use
       "sh"  as  the COMMAND - this gives you a sub-shell with the environment
       defined globally.
