Hi Gnu,

I bash 5.1 man it says that pipeline may consist of single command. So
"echo foo" is a pipeline. It also says that each command in pipeline runs
in a subshell, therefore "echo foo" runs in a subshell. But thats not true.

That's true. How about "each command in a multi-command pipeline is run in
a subshell."
