Man Page for TRUE


       true - do nothing, successfully


       true {--help,--version}


       This  manual  page  documents the GNU version of true (and
       probably every other version, as well).  true does nothing
       except  return  an  exit status of 0, meaning ``success''.
       It can be used as a place holder in shell scripts where  a
       successful  command is needed, although the shell built-in
       command `:' (colon) does the same thing faster.

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

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

              Print version information on standard  output  then
              exit successfully.
