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

Syntax : 

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:

cd() {
    builtin cd "$@" && xtitle "$HOST: $PWD"

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