[07] WHERE ARE PROGRAMS LOCATED ON THIS SYSTEM?

     Standard UNIX utilities can be found in:

     /bin
     /usr/bin

     Programs compiled and installed for use on SDF can be found in:

     /usr/pkg/bin

     Most games can be found in:

     /usr/pkg/games

     Programs authored and maintained by SDF MetaARPA members are in:

     /sys/sdf/bin

     The 'find' utility has been restricted to MetaARPA member use only.
     This was due to abuse by users, usually newbies, running find / 
     which means a search will be conducted over 68 individual disk drives
     with most of them being mounted via NFS.  The bottom line is that
     doing a search like this is highly intensive and takes a significant
     amount of CPU time.  As an alterative you should use 'locate' to find
     programs and utilities located in public paths.
