how do i do this?

i understand what the command does but how do i "Place the following script somewhere in your execution path. Name it 'nuke' and chmod u+x on it. When your trash won't empty and you want it gone fast then just type nuke"?

How to get rid of locked folders/files?
Authored by: jeffeyer on Oct 14, '03 11:16:04PM

I am not able to trash some folders and files with locked symbols on the icons. It stated that I do not have sufficient privileges. (Get Info in General section, the checked locked is grey out.)

I am not familiar using the Terminal. If you have the answer for me, can you tell me step by step?

Thank you.

(Mac OS 10.2.8)
