    My g/f is studing for a test. And one of the questions she needs to know is exactly why there is a "./" before executable commands?

    My answer was that the period and the slash tells the OS that the command is an executable. Is that correct or is there more to it?

    TIA

    Yep, that sounds right to me. Anything that you run that doesn't have the ./ in front of it is normally a script of some kind.
