You're asking what happens if "flibbidiejibbit" is entered on the command-line, as root?

Just to clarify

Somehow, I think that should be flibberdigibbit. At any rate, the results are the same as it is not a Linux command. :)
Code:

flibbidiejibbit
bash: flibbidiejibbit: command not found

flibberdigibbit
bash: flibberdigibbit: command not found

but it could be: if someone placed a link with that name to an actual script or program - careful what you execute when you are root...

It goes without saying -- never run something you don't know as root.

Are you serious??
Do you also need to know what happens with the following commands: rumble, groove, prognosticate, elucidate....???

One should read man pages before executing an unfamiliar command. man flibbidiejibbit :p

as root you enter "flibbidiejibbit" what would the return be.
 
Thanks guys for the info and opinions. It's hard being new to Linux and asked to put for an answer that I don't have the foggiest idea about. (A NEWBIE -I'm from Windows- not DOS). Thanks again.
