Bash Version: 2.05
Patch Level: 0
Release Status: release

Description:
   The Bash manual describes "Here Strings" at
       http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/bashref.html#SEC43

       When attempting to use this feature, bash complains as follows:

       $ cat <<< hi
       bash: syntax error near unexpected token `<<<'

       Is this feature not present in this version of Bash?

Repeat-By:
       $ cat <<< hi
