MISPIPE(1)			   moreutils			    MISPIPE(1)

NAME
       mispipe - pipe two commands, returning the exit status of the first

SYNOPSIS
       mispipe ["command1"] ["command2"]

DESCRIPTION
       mispipe pipes two commands together like	the shell does,	but unlike
       piping in the shell, which returns the exit status of the last command;
       when using mispipe, the exit status of the first	command	is returned.

       Note that some shells, notably bash, do offer a pipefail	option,
       however,	that option does not behave the	same since it makes a failure
       of any command in the pipeline be returned, not just the	exit status of
       the first.

EXIT STATUS
       The exit	status of the first command. If	the process terminated
       abnormally (due to a signal), 128 will be added to its exit status.
