Useless Use Of Cat.[0]

Why is it that you constantly prove your lack of knowledge on LAD? Looks
like you don't even know the most basic UNIX commands. That is:

adi at chopin:~$ ls -l /dev/hpet 
crw-rw---- 1 root root 10, 228 Nov  7 16:03 /dev/hpet

"ll" has historically been an alias for "ls -l" on some systems, let's
say SuSE 4.x ;)

I suggest you check what the "D" in "LAD" stands for and ask yourself if
this is really the right audience for your Linux n00b questions.
