NAME
     if -  conditional command

SYNOPSIS
     if expr command [ arg ... ]

DESCRIPTION
     If evaluates the expression expr, and if its value is true,
     executes the given command with the given arguments.

     The following primitives are used to construct the expr:

     -r file      true if the file exists and is readable.

     -w file      true if the file exists and is writable.

     s1 = s2      true if the strings s1 and s2 are equal.

     s1 != s2     true if the strings s1 and s2 are not equal.

     { command }  The bracketed command is executed to obtain the
                  exit status.  Status zero is considered true.
                  The command must not be another if.

     These primaries may be combined with the following opera-
     tors:

     !            unary negation operator

     -a           binary and operator

     -o           binary or operator

     ( expr )     parentheses for grouping.

     -a has higher precedence than -o.  Notice that all the oper-
     ators and flags are separate arguments to if and hence must
     be surrounded by spaces.  Notice also that parentheses are
     meaningful to the Shell and must be escaped.
