Thanks for the tip. I never really thought about newer
users and font sizes affecting the readability of the
commands. I guess it's been quite awhile since I've
had to think of things like that. Thanks for giving me
a new perspective when helping newbies. :)
Btw, I should have typed
$ which fedora-buildrpmtree
$ rpm --query --file $(which fedora-buildrpmtree)
for increased readability and to save even less
You're right though, that really does seem like it
