An I missing something obvious?
Authored by: Charles on May 17, '01 09:46:22AM

I'm unable to move the jzip file into the /uswr/local/bin directory, it gives me a permission denied. Do I need to be logged in as root? I'm always nervous about doing things as Root in case I blow something up. :)

Ok.. Never mind. I logged in as Root, moved the file to the bin directory just fine.
It still didn't work, instead asking if I was trying to use gzip.
I fixed that by making jzip executable (chmod +x jzip).. then it worked fine. :)

Sometimes if you can't execute something you've just moved it means you need to update the lookup cache for executables in your path. To do this type 'rehash' in the terminal.

there is something similar built right in, open up terminal and type:
emacs
then, push esc+x
at the bottom it should say "M-x"
type:
dunnet

for more games (instead of typing "dunnet")
type:
ls /usr/share/emacs/20.7/lisp/play/

As of this date in OS X 10.2.3, the "20.7" directory is now "21.2" -- and will probably change in the future?
