Submit the full path of the "xxd" binary.

I am too noob and know that it doesn't worth boxes ,but i want to go pass trough this step as i want to learn the basics. and i feel like i don't understand and need some guidance, maybe a team to join and is like me that wishes to learn instead of being a "script kiddie".

Thank you

    I am not sure what the question is asking here. Are you asking how to find the full path of the XXD binary?

    If so, there are a few ways to do this but it is difficult to help without someone reporting it as a spoiler.

    The find command is my favourite for this. But you can also use which and locate effectively.

    Happy to help people but PLEASE explain your problem in as much detail as possible! If you say vague things like "It's not working", I cant help. This isn't Twitter so my DMs are always open.

    Yes i am looking to find the full path with "find" as i am doing academy to learn linux, problem it is that i tried like every command in my way and spent couple of hours to understand it, but still in a struggle to understand it . ( i just want to find some way to understand exactly what they asking for, the command used for it and an explain for it) :(

  • Ok - there is always a risk this will get nuked as a spoiler because people seem overly sensitive about Academy discussions.

    As an example, if you are looking for a file called taz on a Linux machine, you can try:
    find / -name "taz" 2>/dev/null
    find will return all instances of files with the filename taz and will show the full path to the file it retuns along the lines of:
    /home/taz/taz

    The answer to the full path would be /home/taz/taz.

    If the file is a binary/executable you can also get good results with: which taz or locate taz

    You say you are struggling to understand it, can you be more specific what it is you are struggling with?
