creepy feeling in linux...
 
Maybe it's just me, but I just didn't feel comfortable today when I had to man touch

:)

[drumroll]

Which linux distro you're on? And what happened when you did:
Code:

~$ man touch

Have you had to man finger yet, or man mount? ;)

lol... so, is this a natural progression in linux?

1) whereis man
2) which man
3) man touch
4) man finger
5) man mount

Indeed, that is the general progression in Linux -- always towards a love of man.

Dare I say we might need a hard link for that.

I'm not aware of the command
Code:

woman
What does it do?

If you type "woman" in a terminal I think the computer will return random complaints and behave erratically for no particular reason.
