The Customer and the Unix Consultant

Cust what is the command that will tell me the revision code of a program ? UNIX yes, that’s correct. Cust no, what is it ? UNIX yes. Cust so, which is the one ? UNIX no.’which’ is used to find the program. Cust stop this. who are you ? UNIX use ‘who am i’ not ‘who r yoo’.you can also ‘finger yoo’ to get information about ‘yoo’. Cust all i want to know is what finds the revision code ? UNIX use ‘what’. Cust that’s what i am trying to find out. isn’t that true ? UNIX no. ‘true’ gives you 0. Cust which one ? UNIX ‘true’ gives you 0. ‘which programname’ Cust let’s get back to my problem. what program? how do i find it? UNIX type ‘find/-name it’ to find ‘it’.type ‘what program’ to get the revision code. Cust i want to find the revision code. UNIX you can’t ‘find revisioncode’, you must use ‘what program’. Cust which command will do what i need? UNIX no. ‘which command’ will find ‘command’. Cust i think i understand. let me write that. UNIX you can ‘write that’ only if ‘that’ is a user on your system. Cust write what? UNIX no. ‘write that’.’what program’. Cust cut that out! UNIX yes. those are valid files for ‘cut’.don’t forget the options. Cust do you always do this ? UNIX ‘du’ will give you disk usage. Cust HELP! UNIX ‘help’ is only used for Source Code Control System(SCCS). Cust you make me angry. UNIX no, I don’t ‘make me’ angry but i did ‘make programname’ when i was upset once. Cust i don’t want to make trouble, so no more. UNIX no ‘more’? ‘which’ will help you find ‘more’. every system has ‘more’. Cust nice help! I’m confused more now. UNIX understand that since ‘help’ is such a small program, it is better not to ‘nice help’. and ‘more now’ is not allowed but ‘at now’ is. Unless of course ‘now’ is a file name. Cust this is almost as confusing as my PC. UNIX i didn’t know you needed help with ‘pc’.let me get you to the Pascal compiler team.
