    DESCRIPTION

           Exit with the status determined by EXPRESSION.
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           --version
                  output version information and exit
    
           An omitted EXPRESSION defaults to false.  Otherwise, EXPRESSION is true
           or false and sets exit status.  It is one of:
    
           ( EXPRESSION )
                  EXPRESSION is true
    
           ! EXPRESSION
                  EXPRESSION is false
    
           EXPRESSION1 -a EXPRESSION2
                  both EXPRESSION1 and EXPRESSION2 are true
    
           EXPRESSION1 -o EXPRESSION2
                  either EXPRESSION1 or EXPRESSION2 is true
    
           -n STRING
                  the length of STRING is nonzero
    
           STRING equivalent to -n STRING
    
           -z STRING
                  the length of STRING is zero
    
           STRING1 = STRING2
                  the strings are equal
    
           STRING1 != STRING2
                  the strings are not equal
    
           INTEGER1 -eq INTEGER2
                  INTEGER1 is equal to INTEGER2
    
           INTEGER1 -ge INTEGER2
                  INTEGER1 is greater than or equal to INTEGER2
    
           INTEGER1 -gt INTEGER2
           FILE1 -nt FILE2
                  FILE1 is newer (modification date) than FILE2
    
           FILE1 -ot FILE2
                  FILE1 is older than FILE2
    
           -b FILE
                  FILE exists and is block special
    
           -c FILE
                  FILE exists and is character special
    
           -d FILE

           -f FILE
                  FILE exists and is a regular file
    
           -g FILE
                  FILE exists and is set-group-ID
    
           -G FILE
                  FILE exists and is owned by the effective group ID
    
           -h FILE
                  FILE exists and is a symbolic link (same as -L)
    
           -k FILE
                  FILE exists and has its sticky bit set
    
           -L FILE
                  FILE exists and is a symbolic link (same as -h)
    
           -O FILE
                  FILE exists and is owned by the effective user ID
    
           -p FILE
                  FILE exists and is a named pipe
    
           -r FILE
                  FILE exists and read permission is granted
    
           -s FILE

           NOTE:  [  honors  the  --help and --version options, but test does not.
           test treats each of those as it treats any other nonempty STRING.
    
           NOTE: your shell may have its own version of test and/or [, which  usu-
           ally  supersedes  the  version  described  here.   Please refer to your
           shell's documentation for details about the options it supports.
