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.

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.
