Re: /usr/bin/open

in most cases only root is alowed to delete something from /usr/bin

... and i never heard of a binary called "open"

Re: /usr/bin/open

There is a program /usr/bin/open on OS X, and I wouldn't be surprised if there was one for Linux too. But at least it isn't very wide spread.


Application of abstract techniques and utilities to solving a particular business problem is NOT a patentable idea. It is a fundamental concept of the IT industry.

Re: /usr/bin/open

I also can't find /usb/bin/open on my machine (but I do have /usr/bin/openssh and /usr/bin/openssl).

All the same, finding the installed pacman package that owns a given file is done with the following incantation:

pacman -Qo /path/to/file/and/file/name

For example:

pacman -Qo /usr/bin/openssl

returns:

usr/bin/openssl is owned by openssl 0.9.6l-1
