NAME
       or - conditionally execute a command

   Synopsis
       COMMAND1; or COMMAND2

   Description
       or is used to execute a command if the previous command was not
       successful (returned a status of something other than 0).

       or statements may be used as part of the condition in an and or while
       block. See the documentation for if and while for examples.

       or does not change the current exit status itself, but the command it
       runs most likely will. The exit status of the last foreground command
       to exit can always be accessed using the $status variable.

   Example
       The following code runs the make command to build a program. If the
       build succeeds, the program is installed. If either step fails, make
       clean is run, which removes the files created by the build process.

       make; and make install; or make clean
