NAME

   Synopsis
       . FILENAME [ARGUMENTS...]

   Description
       Evaluates the commands of the specified file in the current shell. This
       is different from starting a new process to perform the commands (i.e.
       fish < FILENAME) since the commands will be evaluated by the current
       shell, which means that changes in environment variables, etc., will
       remain. If additional arguments are specified after the file name, they
       will be inserted into the $argv variable.

       If no file is specified, or if the file name '-' is used, stdin will be
       read.

       The return status of . is the return status of the last job to execute.
       If something goes wrong while opening or reading the file, . exits with
       a non-zero status.

   Example
       . ~/.fish

       causes fish to reread its initialization file.
