Where the heck is that documented, and where is the "time" command *AT*?
I typed 'time' at the prompt and got a "syntax error near unexpected
I did a "locate n/time" looking for "time" in a "*bin/" directory --
I searched "man bash-builtins" -- not there.
AHHH -- there it is, in "man bash" buried in "SHELL GRAMMAR -->
Pipelines", where it doesn't stand out at all.
I knew it was simple, just brain dead at 0400.
