yes, i was not trying to be snarky or such when i wrote the above... i was 
simply trying to point the OP to man for finding out many of the basics of most 
all *nix commands/apps... there are some that do not have man pages but instead 
have info pages... some have both... i had hoped that my six word phrase at the 
end with the smiley following it would indicate humor and the intended good will...

you get a +10 on the rest of your reply because you went into more detail that i 
did not have time to go into before i had to leave for my 12 hour shift... 
GoodOnYa!<tm> and thank you ;)

@PEW: i do hope you did not take my comment as ugly or condescending in any 
way... i was not trying to portray that in any manner... i do apologize for my 
apparent terseness...
