Help Menu :)
Stating documentation of coreutils:
"If EXPRESSION is omitted, `test' returns false. If EXPRESSION is a
single argument, `test' returns false if the argument is null and true
otherwise. The argument can be any string, including strings like
`-d', `-1', `--', `--help', and `--version' that most other programs
would treat as options. To get help and version information, invoke
the commands `[ --help' and `[ --version', without the usual closing
It is defined by posix that test should not accept --help and --version arguments ( http://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009696799/utilities/test.html ) . [ --help and [ --version works as expected.
Even though I don't agree with the reassignment to coreutils - as the simple test is shell builtin , closing not a bug, as this behaviour is specified by posix.
