NAME

       and - conditionally execute a command


   Synopsis
       COMMAND1; and COMMAND2

   Description
       The and builtin is used to execute a command if the current exit status
       (as set by the last previous command) is 0.

       The and command does not change the current exit status.

       The exit status of the last foreground command to exit can always be
       accessed using the $status variable.

   Example
       The following code runs the make command to build a program, if the
       build succeeds, the program is installed. If either step fails, make
       clean is run, which removes the files created by the build process



       make; and make install; or make clean
