yubnub (Golden Egg)
SYNOPSIS yubnub [command] EXAMPLE yubnub man ls Alright, this one is kind of weird. It's a YubNub command for ... YubNub itself. So in the above example, "yubnub man ls" is the same as "man ls". It's mostly a test for consistency: that YubNub can add itself as a YubNub command. In fact, the above is equivalent to "yubnub yubnub yubnub man ls". (That's how the Ewoks teach Linux).
