Bash - local - Variable declaration in function - (Builtin)

Bash Liste Des Attaques Ovh


local variable scoping declaration inside a block or a function.

It is an error to use local when not within a function.


local [option] [name[=value] ...]
  • For each argument, a local variable named name is created, and assigned value.
  • The option can be any of the options accepted by declare.

When local is used within a function, it causes the variable name to have a visible scope restricted to that function and its children.

With no operands, local writes a list of local variables to the standard output.

Return value

It is an error to use local when not within a function. The return status is 0 unless local is used outside a function, an invalid name is supplied, or name is a readonly variable.


local pid base= user= nice= bg= pid_file=
