Description Mike A. Harris 2004-10-15 04:08:11 EDT
Description of problem:
The bash manpage does not document the "true" builtin, so people
will assume that "true" executes /bin/true.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Stock FC1 + updates, FC2.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man bash
2. search for the word 'true'
3. go through the entire manual, not finding 'true' documented
Actual results:
true is not found

Expected results:
true is found documented in the manpage

Additional info:
":" is preferred because it is documented.  ;o)
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2004-10-15 04:50:52 EDT
The GNU info pages don't document 'true' either.  ;)
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-10-15 09:58:14 EDT
Reported upstream.
