Subject:   Missing Unix programs?
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I'm reading a book titled "The Unix Programming Environment", and have
noticed that a few of the commands that the book gives examples for such as
cs, pick, what, and where are either not in the basic FBSD installation
package or have a different meaning (the book says that what "tells who's
logged on and what they are doing", while the man page for what says that
it's used to "show what versionf of object modules were used to construct a
file.").  The book's examples are based upon 7th Edition Unix, but the
authors claim that the examples have also been tested out on 4.1BSD unix
with minor modifications.  Unfortunately, with some of the programs that
their examples rely upon missing, it has been difficult to make those minor
modifications.  :)  I have tried looking around in the man pages but to no

Is there a package I can install to get these missing programs or find their
renamed equivalents?
