The pargs utility examines a target process or process core file and prints arguments, environment variables and values, or the process auxiliary vector.
pargs outputs unprintable characters as escaped octal in the format \xxx, unless the character is one of the characters specified in the "Escape Sequences" section of formats(5), in which case the character is printed as specified in that section.
pargs attempts to be sensitive to the locale of the target process. If the target process and the pargs process do not share a common character encoding, pargs attempts to employ the iconv(3C) facility to generate a printable version of the extracted strings. In the event that such a conversion is
impossible, strings are displayed as 7-bit ASCII.
