Title: mispipe Author: Nathanael Nerode Generator: DocBook XSL Stylesheets v1.79.1 <http://docbook.sf.net/> Date: 2006-09-07 Manual: moreutils Source: moreutils Language: English
NAMEmispipe - pipe two commands, returning the exit status of the first
- mispipe ["command1"] ["command2"]
Note that some shells, notably bash, do offer a pipefail option, however, that option does not behave the same since it makes a failure of any command in the pipeline be returned, not just the exit status of the first.
The exit status of the first command. If the process terminated abnormally (due to a signal), 128 will be added to its exit status.
