As I’m sitting in the San Jose Airport, I’m reading the sfdisk man page to get a better handle on the command. I want to script setting up partitions, rather than the interactive fdisk. As I’m reading along, I got a chuckle out of the -f or –force switch:
-f or --force Do what I say, even if it is stupid.
I don’t know why I found that funny, but I thought to myself that more man pages need to be written in this fashion. It sure does brighten up the whole system-administration thing.
