cat /path/to/openMosix-2.4.16-3.gz | gzip -d | patch -p1 -l what does it mean?
I have read the man page of "cat' but still don't quite understand what it does.
say for the command:
cat /path/to/openMosix-2.4.16-3.gz | gzip -d | patch -p1 -l
what does the above actually do?
Thanks a million for helping!
To understand that command (or script), you also have to read manpages of
gzip and patch too.
That command consists of tree separate processes.
To make long story short, those three programs together uncompress and apply a patch to your files.
Thanks a lot for your kind explanation. very veyr much!
