If you open

'man ['

and search for test or [ , you will find the following sentence:

Return a status of 0 (true) or 1 (false) depending on the evaluation of the conditional expression expr.  Each operator and operand must be a separate argument.  Expressions are composed of the primaries described above under  CONDITIONAL  EXPRESSIONS.

These CONDITIONAL EXPRESSIONS are not actually defined above, and aren't defined anywhere in the man page.

It would be nice if the reference could be added there.
