     builtin [-options] [args ...]


     Shell builtin commands are commands that can be executed within the run-
     ning shell's process.  Note that, in the case of csh(1) builtin commands,
     the command is executed in a subshell if it occurs as any component of a
     pipeline except the last.

     If a command specified to the shell contains a slash ``/'', the shell
     will not execute a builtin command, even if the last component of the
     specified command matches the name of a builtin command.  Thus, while
     specifying ``echo'' causes a builtin command to be executed under shells
     that support the builtin echo command, specifying ``/bin/echo'' or
     ``./echo'' does not.

     While some builtin commands may exist in more than one shell, their oper-
     ation may be different under each shell which supports them.  Below is a
     table which lists shell builtin commands, the standard shells that sup-
     port them and whether they exist as standalone utilities.

     Only builtin commands for the csh(1) and sh(1) shells are listed here.
     Commands marked ``No**'' under External do exist externally, but are
     implemented as scripts using a builtin command of the same name.  Consult
     a shell's manual page for details on the operation its builtin commands.
     Users of other shells may need to consult an info(1) page or other
     sources of documentation.
