provides access to the system configuration sets, commonly referred to as
.Qq locations .
When invoked with no arguments,
displays the names and associated identifiers for each defined
.Qq location
and indicates which is currently active.
also allows the user to select or change the active
.Qq location
by specifying its name or identifier.
Changing the
.Qq location
causes an immediate system re-configuration, unless the
.Fl n
option is supplied.
At present, the majority of preferences associated with a
.Qq location
relate to the system's network configuration.
The command line options are as follows:
.Bl -tag -width xx
.It Fl n
Delay changing the system's
.Qq location
until the next system boot (or the next time that the system configuration
preferences are changed).
.It Ar new-location-name

.Qq location
names and associated identifiers will be reported on standard output.
If specified, this argument is matched with the
