true - do nothing, successfully

While I can totally understand the need for such a program but reading the succinct description of the program made me chuckle

       true - do nothing, successfully

       true [ignored command line arguments]
       true OPTION

       Exit with a status code indicating success.

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       NOTE:  your  shell may have its own version of true, which usually supersedes the version described here.  Please refer to your shell's documenta‐
       tion for details about the options it supports.
