Not precisely. According to "man bash" a sequence of command1 ||
command2 means only execute the second command if the first command
returns a non-zero exit status. Conversely, commaand1 && command2
means only execute command2 if command1 returns an exit status of
zero. The command on the left hand side always gets executed first.
