The '#' is to remind you to run these as root -- fewer errors & more access
Ignore all ":grep: ... No such file or directory" lines, they are going to stderr
RTfM on the things you don't understand here, it's a good opportunity to learn. less, grep, & awk are very useful tools, & I have deliberately not explained the options I used. (More chance for you to learn.)
Keep a good bash reference handy as you read the scripts.
If you want to look at other directories, change '/etc/*'.
EDIT: Broke long "Code" lines w/ '\\' to minimize horizontal scrolling. Be sure to re-assemble properly.
thanks! i wont be able to try until later....
i tried to locate the script run from the 'more' command by using find / -name more, hoping this would lead me to the actual script and when i tried to open the 'script' with vi, as determined by the results of find, i got junk printed.
i guess the commands you posted somehow make the scripts into human language as opposed to the machine language these files are in.
