Run a shell builtin, passing it args, and return its exit status.

      builtin [shell-builtin [args]]

This is useful when defining a shell function with the same name as a shell builtin, retaining the functionality of the builtin within the function.

For example, to write a function to replace `cd'
that writes the hostname and current directory 
to an xterm title bar:



      builtin cd "[email protected]" && xtitle "$HOST: $PWD"


This is a BASH shell builtin, to display your local syntax from the bash prompt type: help [b]uiltin

The return status is non-zero if shell-builtin is not a shell builtin command.
