+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1308273 +++
Description of problem:
The builtins(1) man page consistently references sections which cannot be found in same builtins(1). This is confusing since builtins are key features of bash, one of the primary interface to Linux OS for power users.
1. Open builtins man page
$ man builtins
2. Find instances of following text.
(see Arrays above)
(see ARITHMETIC EVALUATION above)
(see READLINE above)
(see SHELL GRAMMAR above) *2
(see COMMAND EXECUTION ENVIRONMENT above)
(see JOB CONTROL above) *
(see Shell Variables above)
(see Brace Expansion above)
(see Pattern Matching above)
(see Completing under READLINE above)
(see COMMENTS above)
(see INVOCATION above)
(see Pathname Expansion above)
(see Programmable Completion above)
3. Note referenced section do not exist in builtins(1).
1. Open bash man page.
$ man bash
2. Note referenced section exist in bash(1).
