in Linux

find your program with “whereis”

Many linux distro build nowadays, each distro came with spesific purpose, server, workstation or desktop orientation but still not forget to give access to shell :-)

people who run “ifconfig” in mandriva will get confuse when run same command in fedora or maybe slackware

“command not found” is common message

just use “whereis” command for this purpose :

whereis ifconfig

whereis perl

whereis sh

answer will show up for full path of program

type full path in shell to get same result, not easy but always work :-)
