No offence, Richard but you're wrong this time.
I suggest you try that command on a test machine before giving your answer as stated above. I have tried it at least 7 times in the past two weeks (and why? because I'm learning how to use Debian. When I get meet a roadblock and no immediate help is at hand, even after googling for answers, I reformat my machine and start anew.)

Thanks for the recommendation, but if and when I meet obstacles and can't solve them, I just have to reformat my machine and start afresh.

In case you didn't already know, I've little knowledge of Debian. By the time I finish reading and understand the concepts of bash scripting, it may be two years from now.
What do you recommend that I do during these two years?
