    FreeBSD - rehash command


    Hello all,
    when working on FreeBSD and you install an application- you can run a command called

    rehash

    If I am correct this command make the newly installed app available to use and also make it show up in the gnome app menu - Is there a similar command in FC2 or linux in general?

    i may be wrong but i think this is more of a shell thing than an OS thing.

    this
    csh, tcsh, zsh: rehash

    is the same command as this
    bash, ksh, zsh, sh: hash

    FreeBSD

    So you rock FreeBSD? eh? , thats cool. I do too. I think its more organized than linux- it becomes appearent when you read the freebsd handbook. But lets not start any sh.. since it is a linux forum. I like linux too since its always on the bleeding edge of technology.
