Unix will give you enough rope to shoot yourself in the foot. If you didn’t think rope would do that, you should have read the man page.

@LoganDice "rope actually refers to a gun suitable for foot-shooting. the etymology comes from an original Unix application named `rope' first implemented in 1978"


@LoganDice "foot-shooting is only supported by a GNU extension. BSD-based systems may not support this functionality."
