Man Page for FALSE



NAME

       false - do nothing, unsuccessfully


SYNOPSIS

       false
       false {--help,--version}


DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page documents the GNU version of false (and
       probably every other version, as well).  false does  noth-
       ing  except  return  an  exit status of 1, meaning ``fail-
       ure''.  It can be used as a place holder in shell  scripts
       where an unsuccessful command is needed.

   OPTIONS
       When  GNU  false is invoked with exactly one argument, the
       following options are recognized:

       --help Print a usage message on standard output  and  exit
              successfully.

       --version
              Print  version  information on standard output then
              exit successfully.
