TRUE(1)                                                   TRUE(1)

NAME
       true - do nothing, successfully

SYNOPSIS
       true
       true {--help,--version}

DESCRIPTION
       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.

   OPTIONS
       When GNU true 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.
