ok, lets say you want to move copy or rename a file and you want to get a confrimation message from the shell command that you really want to make the changes delete or renaming for a particular file. well you can do that with linux. lets say i have a file called myusers and i want to delete it, but i want to get a confirmation prompt before its deleted, so this is the command i would run to do just that:

rm -i myusers

all i am adding is the -i option to the command
