setopt [ {+|-}options | {+|-}o option_name ] [ name ... ]

Set the options for the shell. All options specified either with flags or by name are set. If no arguments are supplied, the names of all options currently set are printed.

Option Description


The arguments are taken as patterns (which should be quoted to protect them from filename expansion), and all options with names matching these patterns are set.

Note: For information about the options supported by the setopt command, refer to Note that not all the options listed on this web page are supported by Symbian.
